Lisette Oropesa's La traviata album a critical success!
Announcement

Lisette's La traviata from San Francisco Classical Recording Company and Pentatone is a critical success. Here are some reviews.

BBC Music Magazine - July 2022
Highly acclaimed for her recent performances in La traviata at major opera houses in the US, Britain, Italy and Spain, the Cuban-American soprano Lisette Oropesa has now recorded the work. And what a dazzling interpretation it turns out to be! A lighter-voiced Violetta than many, leaning more towards the lyric than the dramatic, she sings with a consistent, shimmering beauty, effortless legato and an endearing sense of character.  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Gramophone Magazine - September 2022
Oropesa represents a break from the Violettas of decades past with her clean vocalism and way of inhabiting the role from within, minus a lot of external emotional signalling. The tragic final scene is conveyed with many feats of shading, achieved as much through vocal technique as emotional inspiration, giving her characterisation as much dignity as desperation.

Presto Music - May 2022
The passion and pathos of Oropesa's vivid, truly three-dimensional Violetta registers just as keenly on this studio-recording as it does on stage, and the sheer gorgeousness of her singing (from the manic pyrotechnics which close Act One to the exquisite floated top A at the end of 'Addio del passato') is the worth the price of the set alone. Barbera's elegant, if rather light-voiced Alfredo is an ideal foil, and Lynch matches her emotional investment to the hilt in their great confrontation-scene. ~ Katherine Cooper

Rondo Magazine - June 2022
Lisette Oropesa sings a Violetta of our time. With resolute impetus, her wonderfully full, round soprano voice is alien to the fragility of classical coloratura sopranos; but it doesn't die a split second either. The delicate tones come just as confidently as the lyrical and dramatic outbursts.
