Other recent engagements include gala performances of contemporary music with the LunART Festival in Madison WI, and the roles of Madame Lidoine in Dialogues of the Carmelites and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, both with New Opera Singapore. This fall, Ms. Lien will appear in a recital of French Belle Époque music for the San Francisco International Piano Festival with pianist Gwendolyn Mok.
