Lisette Bolle


Lisette Bolle has sung in various choruses since her early childhood. The love of music and the urge to sing was so strong that after secondary school she went to study with Henny Diemer at the Utrechts Conservatorium (Conservatory of Music in Utrecht). After graduating, she won the Cristina Deutekom Prize at the competition bearing the same name and received the Vriendenprijs (Friend's Prize) from the Nederlandse Reisopera as a Resident Artist for her performance of Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail).

Lisette has sung many oratorios and concert works at home and abroad. Her opera repertoire includes roles such as Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus), Najade (Ariadne suf Naxos), Helmwige (Die Walküre) and Donna Anna (Don Giovanni).  She also sang at the the NTR Saturday Matinee, the Aalto-Musiktheater Essen and the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. She has worked with symphony orchestras such as the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra under conductors such as Marc Albrecht, Jaap van Zweden and Hartmut Haenchen.

With Dutch National Opera, Lisette performed as a soloist in Voce dal cielo (Don Carlo), Fünfte Magd (Elektra), Blumenmädchen and Erste Knappe (Parsifal), Woglinde (Das Rheingold) and Brautjungfer (Der Freischütz). Since 2005, Lisette has enjoyed working as a freelance singer with the Chorus of Dutch National Opera. In 2022 she acquired a permanent position.
