Lisa Daehlin, soprano, has performed numerous roles including Amelia (Un Ballo in Maschera), Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte), Tatiana (Eugene Onegin), Angelica (Suor Angelica), Madame Lidoine (Dialogues of the Carmelites), First Lady (Magic Flute), High Priestess (Aida) and Wellgunde (Das Rhinegold). In New York City, Lisa performs frequently at St. Paul’s Chapel, Cornelia Street Café, and The Players Club. Her concert repertoire focuses extensively on Norwegian, French and American Chanson, Cabaret and Art Song. European concerts in Italy, Germany, and in Scandinavia as an invited singer for the International Edvard Grieg Society in Bergen, Norway.
Though known for her rendition of “I’m a Stranger Here Myself,” Lisa is no stranger to the cabaret stage, having performed incarnations of her show From Classical to Cabaret: The songs of Poulenc, Porter, Weill and Satie in venues as varied as the underground club to the concert hall. She has sung Dorothy Parker songs in the Algonquin’s Oak Room. She has performed the music of Stefania de Kenessey at City Center and with the Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater at Lincoln Center. The recording project for that company is now used in the performance repertoire. She produced and directed OperaKnit Cabaret at Performance Space 122 (PS122, NYC), and her one-woman show Twisted Stitch: Songs of Love and Knitting was featured in the Classical to Jazz festival at Cornelia Street Café (NYC), weaving together songs of Edvard Grieg, Franz Schubert, Maury Yeston and a world premier cycle of songs by Stefania de Kenessey.
Awarded the degree of Master of Arts in Music and Music Education from Columbia University Teachers College, Daehlin operates a private voice studio in New York City.
