From the ever-useful AllAboutOpera.com came this story about one of the winners of this spring's Met Council Finals: the delightful Lisette Oropesa, who's been engaged for the house Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. I look forward to hearing her here in bit parts and recitals.
Meanwhile winners Rodell Rosel and Susanna Phillips are in a similar program in Chicago -- the Lyric Opera Center for American Artists.
Of Jordan Bisch, the remaining winner, I've heard nothing. Though I wouldn't be surprised if something weren't buried in one of the Met missives I've been ignoring all summer.
