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.

🌷 Spring Newsletter

I’m so excited to bring you some updates on what’s going on this upcoming season, as well as some highlights from the past few months. It was wonderful to be a part of ORPHÉE ET EURYDICE at L.A. Opera, which was a lovely production in conjunction with the Joffrey Ballet. It was fun being in rehearsals with the dancers and being inspired by their craft. We then visited some cities in the Pacific Northwest for the spring holidays, all of which were really special and beautiful. Soon I will head back to Los Angeles to perform Gilda in RIGOLETTO with Juan Jesus Rodriguez in the title role, and Arturo Chacon-Cruz as the Duke, as well as my good friends Morris Robinson as Sparafucile and Ginger Costa-Jackson as Maddalena! I know we will have a blast!

Then I have the honor of getting to sing LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR at the Teatro Real in Madrid for 8 performances. The cast is also marvelous, with Javier Camarena as Edgardo, and Artur Rucinski as Enrico. David Alden’s production looks so intriguing and I can’t wait to be a part of it. It’s also of course, very exciting to get to work with Maestro Daniel Oren for the first time. 

We hope you can join us at one of our upcoming shows!
