Lisette is a firsLisetteOropesa_480t generation Cuban American.

This season marks her WNO debut, with two back-to-back productions for which she has already won great acclaim.

Lisette and Lawrence Brownlee appeared in The Marriage of Figaro together at the Pittsburgh Opera, and are reuniting on the WNO stage in The Daughter of the Regiment.

She has appeared over 100 times on The Metropolitan Opera stage.

Some of Lisette’s other celebrated roles include Gilda in Rigoletto and Nannetta in Falstaff. She has also appeared in eight of the Met’s Live in HD productions.

Fun fact! Lisette loves running – a lot. She ran a marathon the morning after the premiere of The Daughter of the Regiment in Pittsburgh. Very impressive!

Watch Lisette perform an excerpt from Rigoletto.


The New York Times says Lisette “sings with effortless grace and lyrical bloom.”
