Lisette Oropesa interviewed with Rossini America
Interview

Thank you toRossini America for speaking with me about my upcoming ADINA at the Rossini Opera Festival this summer!

→ Is this the first time you’ve sung a Rossini opera professionally?

No. I have sung Il Turco in Italia professionally. I studied Barbiere in college and sung Rosina in college. That’s the only other Rossini I’ve done. I’ve never done any of his oratorios either. So this is kind of relatively fresh territory. But I do study a lot of bel canto in general. They always lump together the three bel canto composers. Although I think they’re all ridiculously different and you can tell them all apart when you listen to them.

Rossini has specific things that are unique to him. It feels fresh. It’s fresh territory for me.
