Lisette Oropesa as Marie in La Fille du Regiment at the Pittsburgh Opera
Interview

I was recently interviewed by the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC for my upcoming role as Marie in La fille du regiment with Washington National Opera.  Here is a sample of some of the questions below:

What do you find most compelling and/or challenging about singing in French?

I absolutely love the French language both to speak and sing in. There are almost three times as many vowel sounds in French as there are in Italian, because of all the nasal, open, and closed sounds. So you get a lot of opportunities to color the voice within the text. As a singer it is like a massage!
