Tosca and Fidelio at The Met

Tosca and Fidelio at The Met

The Metropolitan Opera has announced their new season for 2024/2025, revealing that Lise will be starring in two operas at the Met for the first time: Puccini’s Tosca and Beethoven’s Fidelio.

Lise will sing Tosca at The Met on November 12th 2024, and on the 15th, 19th and 23rd. Singing with her will be Freddie de Tommaso, making his house debut as Cavaradossi, and Quinn Kelsey as Scarpia, conducted by Xian Zhang, in a production directed by David McVicar.

Lise will be back at The Met in Spring 2025 to sing Fidelio. She will perform on March 4th, 7th, 10th, 12th and 15th. Joining her as Florestan is David Butt Philip (who sang this role with Lise in London, when she made her role debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden) and Tomasz Konieczny as Don Pizarro. The conductor is Susanna Mälkki, in a production directed by Jürgen Flimm.

Reviews for Lise’s 2020 role debut in Fidelio at Covent Garden were fantastic. The Guardian wrote that "Davidsen, more than fulfilling the high expectations placed on her, makes a phenomenal Leonore. Hers is a great voice, superbly controlled and beautifully equalised throughout its range, able to encompass the long phrases of Abscheulicher without breaking them in two, as one all too often hears. She’s a fine actor, too, conveying Leonore’s anguish, hopes and fears with considerable subtlety.” The Financial Times agreed: "In the role of Leonore, the woman who heroically rescues her husband, we have a symbol of hope for a better future, and many opera-goers are probably feeling the same way about Davidsen. Gifted with a big voice that is beautiful and expressive, she will surely be the outstanding Leonore of the next generation."

Lise recorded Fidelio with Marek Janowksi and the Dresdner Philarmoniker in 2021. San Francisco Classical Voice wrote of the recording: "Davidsen, who has been winning award after award, vindicates her reputation as the most vocally equipped and expressively voiced dramatic soprano of our time”. The recording is available here:
