Lisette Oropesa

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.

I hope you had a warm Holiday season and a Happy New Year.  I was lucky enough to be able to spend Christmas and New Year’s with my family and it was such a treat.  We are almost never free this time of year.  But here we are, refreshed and ready to begin a bright new year with lots of promise.

The first production I’m working on is HAMLET, in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I make my debut as Ophélie.  It’s an exciting role, with a mad scene as well as a more lyric aria.  It’s a good stepping stone to other French rep I’d like to explore.

After that, in Washington DC this March, I am thrilled to be performing a full recital with pianist Vlad Iftinca.  This will be a program of music that is all new to me and in several languages and styles:  Haydn, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Barber, Obradors, and Poulenc.

In late March I give 3 performances of Konstanze at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich.  I always love singing this role again.  It keeps me on my toes!
