Have you received this month's Classical Singer Magazine yet? I was pleasantly surprised to be mentioned alongside Joyce DiDonato in regards to advocating a healthy lifestyle. I truly feel that eating right and exercising regularly are keys to good performance on and off the stage. Not to mention the happiness it brings.

This week I have been working with Ken Noda on the Bach St. Matthew Passion, which I will be singing with Soli Deo Gloria this Friday in Chicago. 

With Ken's blessing, here's a clip from one of our coachings.

See you in Chicago on Friday!

Sign up for my newsletter!

I felt it was a good idea to keep a list of people who would be interested in my upcoming events such as my family, friends, and fans!

I am planning on publishing it every 3 months (January, April, July, October). It will cover the next three months of events as well as anything that was special from the previous three months, such as videos, or reviews, etc. And if there's a last minute engagement, you'll be the first to know!  

Hope to see you all soon!

Running, Eating, Thinking: A Vegan Anthology is a new book by Martin Rowe, a celebrated author. Martin is a marathoner and vegan, like myself, and had attended the Brooklyn Marathon last year when I sang the national anthem. He contacted me and said he was writing an e-book on running and veganisim and asked if I would contribute along with 14 other people (I didn't know who they were at the time). Of course I said yes and the rest is history. As it turns out, his publisher, Lantern Books, decided to publish the book! So please grab your copy and let me know what you think.

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
Next season, Ms. Oropesa revisits 3 major Mozart roles: Pamina, in a debut at Houston Grand Opera, Konstanze at the Bellingham Music Festival, and Susanna with the Ravinia Festival and the San Francisco Opera. She will also make her Spanish opera, role, and house debut as Rosalba in “Florencia en el Amazonas” with the L.A. Opera. Lisette adds another title Donzetti role to her repertoire when she sings Marie in La Fille du Regiment with Pittsburgh Opera. Concert engagements include “Haydn's Creation” and “St. Matthew Passion.”

In the 2013/14 season, Lisette was featured in two new productions at the Metropolitan Opera: Nannetta in “Falstaff,” and Sophie in “Werther,” both of which were featured in the Met’s Live! in HD broadcasts. In concert she was heard as Amalia with the Washington Concert Opera in a rare performance of Verdi’s “I Masnadieri,” as well as Carmina Burana with the Pittsburgh Symphony.

Lisette has appeared in over 100 performances at the Metropolitan Opera and has sung many major roles there, including Susanna 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 the Ravinia Festival and the Santa Fe Opera, "Nannetta" 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, 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.
