Lucia di Lammermoor review – bloody and convincing

But allears as well as eyesare on Lisette Oropesa. Lucia is her first Royal Opera role, and the Cuban-American soprano is sensationally good. She makes the stratospheric vocal fireworks of her mad scene – accompanied by flute this time, not glass harmonica – sound easy; indeed, her every note is part of a convincing portrayal of a complex character. It’s a rare Lucia – and a rare production – that manages that.

It’s a new year and I’m ready to rock and roll.  2018 was the most amazing rollercoaster ride I’ve ever been on and 2019 promises to be another one full of zigzags, climbs, and plunges.  Over the next couple of months, I’m plunging headfirst into two concerts and two new roles.  

My first concert of the year is a recital with pianist Miah Im, for the Maestro Foundation in Santa Monica, on January 20th, featuring selections from my CD, Within, Without.  Then on January 25th, I’ll be singing a concert of arias and duets with the LSU Symphony Orchestra, in Baton Rouge, at my alma mater.  Joining me will be the amazing tenor Paul Groves and baritone Brandon Hendrickson.  

In March I’ll be doing my first performances of Handel’s RODELINDA, which I’ll debut at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.  On April 2nd and 5th, I’ll make my role and house debut as Isabelle in Meyerbeer’s ROBERT LE DIABLE, in concert with La Monnaie/De Munt in Brussels.  It’s very exciting to prepare new roles and last year I sang 5 of them.  

This year I plan to not only sing new roles but revisit some other repertoire that I haven’t sung in years, which feels new and fresh as well.  Perfect way to start a new year!
