LISETTE OROPESA with the Wexford Festival Orchestra

Sunday, 18 October 2020, 8.00pm

A special concert live from the stage of the National Opera House with the internationally-renowned American lyric coloratura soprano Lisette Oropesa, accompanied by the Wexford Festival Orchestra, conducted by Francesco Cilluffo.

Lisette Oropesa is one of the most in-demand lyric coloraturas today, who has triumphed in various roles throughout the most important houses in Europe and the US. Known for her liquid legato and seamless technique, stylistic integrity, precise coloratura, and superlative acting, Lisette excels in the repertoire of the bel canto, Mozart, and French composers.

Conductor Francesco Cilluffo is best remembered by Wexford audiences for leading the critically-acclaimed operas: Guglielmo Ratcliff (Mascagni, 2015), Risurrezione (Alfano, 2017), and most recently the double-bill of L’oracolo / Mala vita (Leoni / Giordano, 2018). La Stampa named Francesco Cilluffo as one of the top young Italian conductors on the international circuit today.
