Lee's performance in Sieglinde Die Walküre for the Longborough Festival Opera, prompted many favourable reviews, including this from The Times' Richard Morrison; "Lee Bisset is a revelation as Sieglinde. Ardent in voice, as strong in her exultant final outburst as in her rapturous Act 1 love scene, she alone seems totally on top of her role’s vocal and dramatic challenges." Whilst The Independent's Nicola Christie, simply stated: “Bisset was a revelation, her mesmerising voice fired by a passion and vitality that were overwhelming.”
Her perfomance as Tatyana in the 2012 production of Eugene Onegin at the Tabacco Factory, Bristol was described by Rian Evans of the Guardian as "Bisset's voice has a rich, velvety sound throughout its range and seems so effortlessly supple."
Lee is currently in demand and has been booked to appear on stages all over the world over the next few years. Lee is the recipient of the Audrey Gunn Award.
Lee names her heroes as Maria Callas, Maggie Gyllenhall and Cate Blanchett, and that, in her spare time, she enjoys reading, walking, drinking coffee and eating cake with friends.
