Outside Opera, Lisa is an award winning voice actor, audio book narrator, improviser and photographer.
Her improvised opera, La Donna Improvvisata, was praised as "one of FringeNYC 2014's most innovative theatrical formats!" Lisa has toured La Donna in festivals across the United States.
StageBuddy declared La Donna Improvvisata as "long form improv at its best from a performer with a wonderfully trained voice, keen sense of story structure, and seemingly instinctual ability to create compelling characters out of nothing."
