Reviews

NATIONAL OPERA AMSTERDAM 2013-2014: GIUSEPPE VERDI'S FALSTAFF of 7 JUIN 2014

Lisette Oropesa est l'exemple même de chanteuse américaine très préparée, techniquement sans failles, mais qui a aussi une vraie personnalité scénique, lumineuse, engagée.

—  Wanderer  •  Le blog du Wanderer

Falstaff, berooide veelvraat die harten steelt

Lisette Oropesa, als jonge bakvis Nannetta uithuilend bij een bak ijs, klinkt puur en zuiver. In de verkleedscène in het bos is ze een engelachtige Feeënkoningin.

—  Floris Don  •  NRC Handelsblad

Food, Glorious Food: Falstaff at the Holland Festival Is a Feast for the Eyes and Ears

With her beautifully floated, vibrant soprano Ms Oropesa was simply bewitching in Nannetta's Fairy Queen aria, “Sul fil d’un soffio etesio”

—  Jenny Camilleri  •  Bachtrack

Performance History

Lisette has given 25 performances as Nannetta.
