Lisette Oropesa


Soprano Lisette Oropesa has her own special, uniquely magical charm. There is no question that she’s one of today’s most sought-after, acclaimed and revered singers of the global opera scene.

Her pitch-perfect technique is complemented by a crystalline, colourful and powerful voice. What’s more, she has a sharp sense of lyrics and impressive drama skills. When not singing, she loves books by the Brontë sisters and runs marathons.

“There must be a strength and a vulnerability. In this career, you cannot have only one.”

The Cuban-American singer started from the very top at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. She visited the Savonlinna Opera Festival in 2019 with Milan’s La Scala. At this year’s festival, she will also sing the lead role of Romeo and Juliet.

“Now, what is a diva? I have never called myself one nor do I concern myself with trying to be one. For me, a diva is a person who gives their life to this craft and gains the respect and admiration of those around them. But they don’t do it by trying. They do it by simply doing.”
