Lisa Saffer

Lisa Saffer, soprano “La Princesse”
Philip Glass Orphée
Portland Opera
Anne Manson, conductor

“...a terrific cast, led by Lisa Saffer, a cougar on the prowl as the Princess of death....Saffer’s singing was powerful, moving, and fearless. Her upper register, where Glass places a lot of awkward phrases, gleamed, even as she smoldered at Orpheus.”
David Stabler, The Oregonian
