Lisette Oropesa HeadshotLisette was just seen as Sophie in the Metropolitan Opera’s highly acclaimed new production of WERTHER, and debuted performances of Haydn’s Creation with New Choral Society, and Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Chicago Bach Project. This spring, she makes her Dutch National Opera debut as Nannetta in FALSTAFF. She then kicks off her summer at the Bellingham Music Festival singing Konstanze in Mozart’s DIE ENTFÜHRUNG AUS DEM SERAIL, followed by a concert of Haydn’s Creation with the Credo Festival.

She then makes another notable debut, at the Houston Grand Opera after the new year, as Pamina in Mozart’s DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE. In the spring of 2015 she returns to Pittsburgh to sing her first ever performances of LA FILLE DU REGIMENT.
