Described as “sparkling” by Opera News, coloratura soprano Lindsay Ohse began the 2012 season with the American west coast premiere of Philip Glass’ Galileo Galilei with Portland Opera, singing the leading role of Marie Celeste. She then traveled to northern Germany, participating in a Gala Concert as a soloist with the Eutin Festspiele in Eutin, Germany. Prior to that, she made several house debuts, including Marie in La Fille du Regiment at Wichita Grand Opera and Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro at Portland Opera. Previous performances include Constance in Dialogues of the Carmelites at Des Moines Metro Opera, Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte at both the Santa Fe Opera and Sarasota Opera, Viclinda in Verdi's rarely performed I Lombardi and Ann Putnam in The Crucible, also at Sarasota Opera.
Winner of the 2012 Metropolitan Opera National Council Oregon District Auditions, Lindsay recently finished a residency with Portland Opera, where performances included Armida in Handel’s Rinaldo. Other engagements this season include a role debut of Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni at Opera Southwest in Albuquerque, New Mexico and the lead role of the Governess in Britten's Turn of the Screw at Brava Opera Theater in Medford, Oregon.
