Soprano Lisette Oropesa has been hailed by The New York Times as an artist with a “magnetic” stage presence, who “sings with effortless grace and lyrical bloom.” She makes regular appearences on concert and opera stages throughout Europe and North America, identified as an artist “who has established an excellent reputation for singing with luminous tones and precise coloratura.”
Next season, Ms. Oropesa revisits three major Mozart roles: Konstanze at the Bellingham Music Festival and the Bayerische Staatsoper; Pamina, in a debut at Houston Grand Opera; and Susanna with the Ravinia Festival and the San Francisco Opera. She will make her Spanish opera, role and house debut as Rosalba in Florencia en el Amazonas with LA Opera. Lisette adds another title Donizetti role to her repertoire when she sings Marie in La Fille du Regiment with the Pittsburgh Opera. Concert engagements in 2014/15 include Haydn's Creation and Bach's St. Matthew Passion.
In the 2013/14 season, Lisette debuted at the Dutch National Opera as Nannetta in Falstaff. At the Metropolitan Opera, she was featured in two new productions, Falstaff and Werther, both of which were included in the Met’s Live in HD broadcast series. In concert she was heard as Amalia with the Washington Concert Opera in a rare performance of Verdi’s I Masnadieri, and she sang Carmina Burana with the Pittsburgh Symphony.
