Lisette Oropesa in Orfeo ed Euridice (Credit: Ken Howard)

I had a great chat with LA Opera about my upcoming performance of Orfeo ed Euridice

“These two roles couldn’t be more different,” Oropesa told LA Opera earlier this month. “Gilda pretty much sits an octave higher [than Eurydice] the whole time. And she has a very different journey than Eurydice. Gilda is a more rounded out character, and the story is more dramatic and intense. Orpheus is about an emotional process that is very intimate, and Rigoletto is more about a series of events that causes a tragedy, rather than beginning with one.”
