Praised in The Guardian as “the most all-round compelling Sieglinde I have heard since the great Helga Dernesch,” Lee Bisset was born in Scotland, which she represented at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. She studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and the National Opera Studio, before joining the Young Singers’ Programme at English National Opera.

 

She established a firm relationship with Longborough Festival Opera, where she has sung the title roles in Katya Kabanova and Tosca, Tatyana Eugene Onegin, Gutrune Götterdämmerung, Freia Das Rheingold, Isolde Tristan und Isolde and Sieglinde Die Walküre.

 

Elsewhere, she has sung for Chelsea Opera Group, the Dorset Opera Festival, Northern Ireland Opera, Opera North, and Scottish Opera, whilst international engagements have included performances with Opra Memphis, Opera Omaha, the Ópera de Bellas Artes, Mexico City, and the Ópera São Paulo.

 

Lee Bisset continues her studies with Dame Anne Evans. Her urrent engagements include Yaroslavna Prince Igor for Chelsea Opera Group, a return to Opera Omaha in the title role of Tosca, further performances as Isolde Tristan und Isolde for Longborough Festival Opera, Brünnhilde Götterdämmerung – Act 2 for The Mastersingers, Brünnhilde Siegried – Act 3 for the Scottish Wagner Society and Gerhilde Die Walküre at the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival.

 

This is her debut with the Flanders Symphony Orchestra.
