Cuban-American soprano Lisette Oropesa who has "an endless supply of golden-age trills," (Opera News) and "involves herself deeply in the words she sings," (New York Times) and "She is a very complete singer and above all, one that doesn't cheat" (El Pais)
After her smashing success as LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR at the Teatro Real, Madrid, Lisette heads to Italy this summer to debut in ADINA at the Rossini Opera Festival, and give a solo CONCERT with orchestra. She will then star at the Arena di Verona and sing the second act of Rigoletto for Verdi Opera Night. In the fall, she heads to the Opéra National de Paris to make two role debuts. The first one as Marguerite de Valois in LES HUGUENOTS and right after as Adina in L'ELISIR D'AMORE, and returns to the Rome Opera as Gilda in a new production of RIGOLETTO.
In the spring, Lisette makes her role and house debut at the Liceu Opera in Barcelona in a new production of Handel's RODELINDA, in the title role. Another exciting debut then follows, as Lisette performs in concert the role of Isabelle in Meyerbeer's ROBERT LE DIABLE at La Monnaie in Brussels. She then returns to Pittsburgh Opera to sing Norina in DON PASQUALE, and then to Teatro alla Scala, to sing Amalia in I MASNADIERI.
Lisette Oropesa…relève du miracle artistique qu’on voudrait ne jamais quitter et voir se répéter sans cesse. (ResMusica)
She has an instrument full of interesting dark colours and technical mastery put at the service of communication and the drama. (Classical Source)
