Lisa Carlioth has a rare ability to give life to complex female characters in opera literature and to move people with her heartfelt, shimmering lyrical soprano voice. After some years as a member of the ensemble at Staatstheater Oldenburg in Germany she returned to Sweden again. The first role she sang in Sweden after coming back was Amelia in Folkoperan’s adapted version of Un ballo in maschera. Among other roles in Sweden since then can be mentioned Alice Ford in Läckö opera’s production of Falstaff.
This season Lisa will return to Folkoperan for the revival of Satyagraha by Philip Glass. The production about the young Mahatma Gandhi’s time in South Africa, is staged by Tilde Björnfors and will be guesting New York in 2018.
