“… with blistering power and assurance, as well as a range of vocal colors and emotional shadings, [Oropesa] is one to watch.”
—The Boston Globe
A winner of the Met’s National Council Auditions in 2005, Cuban-American soprano Lisette Oropesa has been taking the opera world by storm ever since with vocally commanding performances at the Metropolitan Opera as well as other opera houses in the U.S. and Europe. She performs a program of Spanish art songs as well as works by Schubert and Schumann, offering audiences the chance to get to know this star on the rise in one of the only spaces that could provide such an intimate encounter – the Board of Officers Room.
