Opolais has appeared at the Metropolitan Opera, Vienna State Opera, Berlin State Opera, Bavarian State Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Zurich Opera House, and the Royal Opera House.

Last season, Opolais sang her signature role of Madama Butterfly at the Teatro Municipale Giuseppe Verdi Salerno, earning critical praise for her moving performance and mastery of the character. In concert, she sang gala performances with the Istanbul State Opera and Ballet in Istanbul and Ankara, as well as a tribute concert at Latvian National Opera, given in memory of Andrejs Žagars. She also performed a concert of arias by Puccini, Cilea, Verdi, and more in a New Year’s concert with the Gulbenkian Orchestra, led by Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv.
