Berlioz to Donizetti and Verdi, Pretty Yende pursues her travels through the
repertoire. Singing Benvenuto Cellini for the first time, the South
African soprano recounts her growing affection for the French repertoire. Back
next season in Don Pasquale, directed by Damiano Michieletto (March),
and in La Traviata, directed by Simon Stone (September), Pretty Yende
will once more become Norina, one of her favorite roles, and tackle the iconic
Violetta for the first time.
