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.
New Orleans native Lisette Oropesa, the soprano diva, who was raised in Baton Rouge, went to LSU and who'll return to Louisiana soon, to perform in the coming LSU Opera Gala.

Opera Lively has interviewed bright young soprano Lisette Oropesa, in the premises of the Met Press Lounge for the occasion of her interpretation of Gilda in Rigoletto. We've been following her career with attention, and are very excited for the success she's been having. After having attended her excellent Gilda, we look forward to seeing her in Le Nozze di Figaro as Susanna in Santa Fe (we'll be there for the August 3rd show). This young lady is not only a very gifted singer, but is also intelligent and articulate, not to forget very charming in person.
