Lisette Oropesa sings Lucia at the Arizona Opera
Interview

While I was in Arizona singing as Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor with the Arizona Opera, I was asked to talk a little bit about the opera and the ironic events that surrounded the production. I hope you all enjoy this interesting tale! 

I never want to show that Lucia is crazy from the beginning. You can show that Lucia has problems; there are things that are not right about her. But she is not crazy in the beginning; it's a process, a journey. ... The girl is manipulated left and right by other people. As an audience member, you sympathize with this woman who has absolutely no power. We want to sympathize with Lucia. ... It's kind of the inevitable result of a person being pushed too far and breaking out in extreme rebellion in an extreme society. We understand why it happens.
