I want to get all your books.  You are saying exactly what I keep telling myself, and then I go seasons without wearing my most precious items because I'm always saving them.  And I asked for pearls for Christmas!  :)  Thank you for being so lovely and sharing your style with the world.

Introduction

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.”

“...the wonderfully silky, bell-like soprano of Lisette Oropesa, whose Nannetta charmed without cloying. Her sustained high notes during “Sul fil d’un soffio” were as magical as one could hope for.”

Eric Myer • New York Classical Review

In the 2014-15 season, Ms. Oropesa debuts at the Grand Théâtre de Genève as Gilda in RIGOLETTO, and she revisits 3 major Mozart roles: Konstanze at the Bayerische Staatsoper; Pamina, in a debut at Houston Grand Opera; and Susanna with the New Orleans Opera and the San Francisco Opera. She makes her Spanish opera, role, and house debut as Rosalba in FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS with the L.A. Opera. Lisette also adds another title Donizetti role to her repertoire when she sings Marie in THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT with the Pittsburgh Opera. Concert engagements in 2014/15 include Haydn's Creation, Bach's St. John Passion, and a single broadcast performance of RIGOLETTO with the Radio Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.

Last 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, Konstanze in ENTFÜHRUNG with the Bellingham Music Festival, Carmina Burana with the Pittsburgh Symphony, St. Matthew Passion with the Chicago Bach Project, and Haydn's Creation with Soli Deo Gloria, and Susanna in NOZZE at the Ravinia Festival.


Matthew Murphy

Lisette has appeared in over 100 performances at the Metropolitan Opera, including Susanna in LE NOZZE DI FIGARO and Gilda in Michael Mayer’s new production of RIGOLETTO, as well as having appeared in 8 of the Met's Live in HD productions. Other career highlights include appearances in the USA and Europe: the title role of LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR and Fiorilla in IL TURCO IN ITALIA with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Cleopatra in GIULIO CESARE with the Michigan Opera Theatre, Susanna in NOZZE at both the Ravinia Festival and the Santa Fe Opera, Nannetta in FALSTAFF at ABAO Opera Bilbao and San Francisco Opera, Konstanze at the Tanglewood Music Festival, Welsh National Opera, and Pittsburgh Opera. In concert, she has performed Carmina Burana with the Chicago Symphony, conducted by Maestro Riccardo Muti, and with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and the Cleveland Orchestra. In 2008 she sang Brahms’ Liebeslieder-Walzer at Weill Hall with James Levine and Daniel Barenboim at the pianos.

Ms. Oropesa is a 2008 graduate of The Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, and was a winner of The Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in 2005.
