Soprano Lise Davidsen is set to be a Met Opera star over the next few seasons.

Per The New York Times, the soprano, who will make her debut this coming month in “The Queen of Spades” is set to perform in a number of major operas over the next three seasons.

She will appear as Leonore in “Fidelio,” “Chrysothemis in “Elektra,” the title role in “Ariadne auf Naxos,” Eva in “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg,” and the Marschallin in “Der Rosenkavalier.”

While the dates are not set, this confirms that all of these operas will be coming to the hallowed New York stage between 2020-23.

This would be the first time since 2011 that “Ariadne auf Naxos” is presented at the Met; the other operas have been presented more recently with the company.

Davidsen is set to take on the role of Leonore in “Fidelio” at the Royal Opera House later this season; she will also perform the role in Dresden with the Philharmonie.
