A Renowned Operatic Soprano

Brownlee, Oropesa and Ginsburg in WNO's 'Regiment'

Oropesa, who dominated the recent WNO production of “The Marriage of Figaro” as Suzanna, does so again as the foundling Marie, displaying not only marvelous, trilling and thrilling singing chops, but also a gamine comedic touch that reminds one of silent-movie clowns. She’s athletic and not afraid of slapstick, and she even has to pretend to sing badly, always a neat trick for a superb singer.

Spring Newsletter

It’s my favorite time of year again!  Spring is fresh with a new city and a new role.  This season I’ll be spending two months in glorious Amsterdam for 10 performances of Gilda in RIGOLETTO.  I am excited to bring this production by Damiano Michieletto to life!  We will be focusing on the harsh, cruel aspects of the classic story, and it will no doubt be an adventure as we work together.

Then I head to Glyndebourne for my debut as Norina in DON PASQUALE!  Performances begin in July.  Can’t wait to get a feel for the English countryside, which I just know I am going to love.  Bring on the bel canto!  In the meantime, on June 18th, I’ll drop by the Clos de Vougeot for a concert of Poulenc, Fauré, and Schubert with the Musique et Vin Festival, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.  Burgundy is where my favorite wines in the world are made, and I cannot wait to go back and enjoy a weekend there.
