Following WERTHER at the Metropolitan Opera, Lisette finishes her 2013-14 season with performances of Haydn’s Creation with New Choral Society, and Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with Chicago Bach Project. She 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. Then Lisette returns to Ravinia once again as Susanna in LE NOZZE DI FIGARO.
Next season, Lisette will debut at the Los Angeles Opera as Rosalba in FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS. 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 she returns to Pittsburgh to sing her first ever performances of LA FILLE DU REGIMENT. Lisette will finish her exciting 2014-15 season performing the role of Susanna at the San Francisco Opera.

An undisputed master of Verdi's final comic masterpiece, James Levine conducts Robert Carsen's acclaimed production, the first new Met Falstaff since 1964. Ambrogio Maestri sings the role of the blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble cast.
Recently, I spoke with St. John Flynn at Classical 91.7 Houston about Falstaff at The Metropolitan Opera. We chatted about the music of Falstaff, the production, and of course, working with James Levine!
Please listen to the interview below.
David Salazar from the The Latinos Post recently interviewed me for the upcoming Falstaff at the Metropolitan Opera. We recapped some highlights from the year and discussed some things that I am looking forward to. It was really nice to sit down with him again. Hope you guys enjoy this interview!
"I have heard him [James Levine] say on numerous occasions that he believes this is Verdi's true masterpiece," she stated. "He loves the score so much. I have seen him kiss and caress [the actual score]."
