Lisette Oropesa
Born in New Orleans in 1983, Lisette Oropesa is one of the most sought-after (coloratura) sopranos of her generation. With her extensive repertoire of roles, she is a guest on all the great stages of the world. The soprano with Cuban roots made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera New York, where she shone in the roles of Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Gilda (Rigoletto) and Nannetta (Falstaff). After numerous guest engagements in the United States, she has since conquered the European opera stages, from the Teatro Real in Madrid to the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, from the festival stages of the Arena di Verona to the Finnish Savonlinna. The soprano has also received much applause for her brilliant bel canto role of Lucia in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, with which she made her house debut at the Royal Opera House in London. At the International Opera Awards 2020 Lisette Oropesa was nominated in the category Female Singer.

Turandot - G. Puccini
When Giacomo Puccini died in Brussels in November 1924 as a result of cancer, his composition of "Turandot" was still unfinished. The composer Franco Alfano (1876-1954) was then commissioned to complete the opera. At the premiere at the Teatro alla Scala, the work was performed as a homage to Puccini only up to Liù’s death aria. The conductor Arturo Toscanini addressed the audience at this point: "Here the opera ends, because this is where the master died". "Turandot" can be regarded as the culmination of Puccini’s creative output, since it perfectly combines all four elements that characterize his incomparable style: The slave Liù symbolizes the lyrical-sentimental element, the pair Turandot/Kalaf the heroic, while the three courtiers stand for the comic-grotesque. The exotic element is achieved by using authentic Chinese sages and pentatonic motifs. Compared to his other works, "Turandot" has greater echoes of contemporary musical trends, as well as dissonances, polytonal effects and, for the traditionally trained listener, irritating effects in singing and orchestration, making it - compared to his earlier operas - long less popular with the audience. In the meantime, however, Puccini’s last work has established itself on the opera stages. In it, his life’s work is bundled and gives room for speculation as to what the composer’s further musical development might have been like.

Carmen - G. Bizet
Carmen is undoubtedly one of the most popular and most performed operas in the world. Its premiere in 1875 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris, however, was only a moderate success: The outrageous new realism, the brutality and vehemence in the actors’ actions, and not least the shady milieu, overwhelmed the conventional Parisian audience, which was stuck in old patterns of thought. The opera is set around 1820 in Seville, Andalusia, and is based on the novella of the same name by Prosper Merimée. The libretto was co-produced by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy (nephew of composer Jacques Fromental Halévy and also cousin of Georges Bizet’s wife). Shortly after its premiere, Carmen began its triumphal march across the world via Vienna and the rest of Europe, a triumph that continues to this day. The theme and plot of this opera inspired numerous artists to create independent works, and various (opera and dance) films as well as ballets were made. Georges Bizet (1838-1875), however, unfortunately did not live to see the triumph of his sensual and passionate masterpiece. Exactly three months to the day after the first performance, he succumbed to a fatal heart attack at the age of only 36.
