The Daughter of the Regiment with Pittsburgh Opera with Lisette Oropesa as Marie

Lisette OropesaThis season, Lisette makes her debut with the Grand Théâtre de Genève as Gilda in RIGOLETTO, she performs the role of Konstanze in DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL at the Bayerische Staatsoper, and debuts at the Los Angeles Opera as Rosalba in FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS. After the new year, she makes another notable debut, at the Opéra national de Paris, as Konstanze. She joins the Radio Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam for one broadcast performance of RIGOLETTO, and returns to the Chicago Bach Project for Bach's ST. JOHN PASSION. In the spring of 2015, she returns to her hometown of New Orleans to sing Susanna in LE NOZZE DI FIGARO, and heads to Pittsburgh to sing her first ever performances of THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT. Lisette will finish her exciting 2014-15 season performing the role of Susanna in NOZZE at the San Francisco Opera.

Last season at the Metropolitan Opera, Lisette was seen as Nannetta in FALSTAFF, Sophie in WERTHER, and debuted performances of Haydn’s Creation with New Choral Society, and Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Chicago Bach Project. After making her Dutch National Opera debut as Nannetta in FALSTAFF, she appeared at the Bellingham Music Festival as Konstanze, followed by a concert of Haydn’s CREATION with the Credo Festival, and a successful return to Ravinia to sing Susanna in NOZZE.

Chris Waddington of the New Orleans Times-Picayune recently interviewed me for my upcoming performances of Le Nozze di Figaro at the New Orleans Opera.

"I love working in Louisiana," Oropesa said. "It's more than a free trip home to see Mom, my siblings and grandparents. When I'm in New Orleans, I'm reminded that things move at a slower pace in the South, and that people really take time with each other. It's not all about cellphones and rushing."

Please head on over to and see how I ended up singing 'La Vie en Rose' at a patron event!
