Lisette Oropesa: Portrait of a singer infatuated with Mozart – Culture

Lisette Oropesa didn’t really want to be an opera singer, but today she is celebrated in all the big houses in the world. Why she basically had no choice but to become famous – and what Mozart has to do with it.

“I love Mozart, he is my favorite composer.” She would never trust someone who didn’t like Mozart. As she says it, Lisette Oropesa — the singer looks like a 1920s silent film star — rolls her black-rimmed eyes. Mozart, Mozart, Mozart, that’s her be-all and end-all.
