Lisette Oropesa in Tucson Arizona

Seen and Heard International was very kind to ask me a few questions for their new series of interviews that they are starting. Of course, I was very happy to oblige!

Here's a snippet:

How do you expect you voice to change as years pass?

I hope that with careful planning and good technique and healthy habits, my voice can last many more years. But you never really know. Anything can have an effect on your voice and its colours. I hope to grow into my lyric sound but don’t think I’ll be singing Aida any time soon!

What roles are you hoping to be invited to sing in future that you do not sing now?

I do hope to stick to the lyric coloratura repertoire for as long as I’m able. I’d like to have the opportunity to sing Sonnambula and Puritani, as well as a few other Bellini roles before I can’t do them anymore! There are a few French roles as well, such as Juliette and Manon.
