Rigoletto - 'Caro nome'

Aunque el éxito del estreno de #Rigoletto fue incontestable, no todos los críticos coincidieron. 'La Revue et gazette musicale de Paris' apuntó: “Al buscar la sencillez, Verdi ha caído en la frivolidad. En otras óperas ha conseguido ocultar la pobreza de ideas con pomposas descargas instrumentales, pero 'Rigoletto' es la ópera más débil de Verdi, la más carente de melodías y tendrá una vida brevísima”.Lisette Oropesa interpreta 'Caro nome' como Gilda. 'Rigoletto', en el Teatro Real hasta el 29 de diciembre. bit.ly/1GYbtJd

I had a great time talking with 225 Baton Rouge for my upcoming Mozart C Minor Mass concert! Here is an exerpt from our interview!

How does it feel to do a homecoming show like this one with BRSO?

It’s really exciting! I haven’t sung with Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra ever. I sang in choruses that worked with BRSO when I was really young, and I was in band growing up, so I’ve probably worked with some of the members, so that’s about the association I’ve had with BRSO. It’s my first time being invited to do something like this. It does feel like coming home, but it also feels like a first time.
