Lisette interviewed in PGH in the Round

Thank you to PGH in the Round for talking with me about our upcoming performance of Don Pasquale here in Pittsburgh!

She touched on recently winning the Richard Tucker Award – the “Oscar” of opera.

“I feel very honored that I was chosen. I didn’t think that I was ever going to win the big award because I always thought it was given to a more American-centric career, a person who sings a lot more at the Met. And even though I used to sing a lot at the Met, the bulk of my career lately has been in Europe. So even though I have American engagements, I didn’t think it was enough to qualify me for the big prize. But I do have some big engagements at the Met this coming season and in future seasons, and I guess they thought this was the right time to award me, and I was really grateful.”
