Her bright lyric soprano resulted in a rendition of "Caro nome" that literally stopped the show.

Il soprano cubano-americano Lisette Oropesa, é stata una Gilda di gran classe, con una voce molto bella, tibrata e intonata.

Lisette Oropesa was a ravishing Gilda, her silvery tones and beautiful high range perfectly suited for the role of the young innocent girl. “Gualtier Malté”, that one and only traditionally-constructed aria of the opera, had unfortunately to be interrupted at first, so as to...

Oropesa also has, perhaps more noticably for some, a pure light lyric soprano that is as balanced and classically expressive as recent decades have seen.

The standout, however, was Lisette Oropesa’s Gilda. The American soprano is a superb coloratura with ringing top notes. She displayed a strong sense of line which she used to convey all the sides of her character. Her evolution from an innocent young girl to a resolute woman was cr...

Il vibrato della statunitense Lisette Oropesa fa sì che la sua voce di soprano leggero sia sempre percorsa di una pregevole vivacità; la tecnica vocale compiutissima, la grazia nel porgere, la precisione nei vocalizzi ne fanno un’interprete perfetta del carattere di Gilda: ...

De show werd echter gestolen door Rigoletto’s dochter Gilda, vertolkt door de Amerikaanse sopraan Lisette Oropesa (vorig seizoen Nanetta in Falstaff bij De Nationale Opera). In haar stemgeluid lagen zowel een warme laagte als een glanzende hoogte besloten, en haar vocale acrobatiek was i...

De Lisette Oropesa conocíamos personajes asociados a ese tipo de vocalidad femenina denominado soubrette. De hecho, su nombre  de pila es el mismo que detenta un perfecto ejemplo de tal categoría sopranil, o sea, la segunda soprano de La rondine, personaje que forma parte de...

Al fianco di tale Rigoletto, l'ottima Gilda di Lisette Oropesa. Con un legato di alta scuola e un bel timbro di soprano lirico, la Oropesa indulge in acuti esposti come bella mercanzia (per esempio al termine del duetto con il Duca, il quale però non la segue all'acuto, sembrando cos&ig...

And Lisette Oropesa was a Gilda who invited tenderness. Her pure, smooth soprano and alert presence were both endearing

Lisette Oropesa ist eine sehr koloratursichere, innig zarte Gilda, welche die Kantilenen gleichsam mit dem Silberstift zeichnet. Dabei kommt die Liebe zum Vater allerdings glaubhafter zum Ausdruck als die Leidenschaft für den Herzog die Gilda ihr Leben opfert. Sie gestaltet ihre grosse Ar...

Für die erkrankte Patricia Petibon übernahm dankenswerterweise kurzfristig Lisette Oropesa die Rolle der Gilda, die sie mit ihrem vollen, leuchtenden, farbenreichen Sopran sehr schön darbot.
