On December 2, 9,14 and 16, Pretty Yende will perform the role of Violetta in Verdi’s iconic opera, La Traviata, at Staatsoper Hamburg.
Quickly becoming a signature of Ms. Yende’s, she has gained significant praise for her portrayal of this fiendishly difficult role, with Opera News noting that she put on a “magical performance” when she premiered it with Opéra National de Paris in 2019.
In this stunning production by Johannes Erath, Ms. Yende will share the stage with Dmytro Popov as Alfredo, Andrzej Dobber as Giorgio Germont, Kristina Stanek as Flora Bervoix, Renate Spingler as Annina, Bernhard Hansky as Il Barone Douphol, David Minseok Kang as Il Dottore Grenvil, Han Kim as Marchese d’Obigny, Peter Galliard as Gastone and Seungwoo Simon Yang as Giuseppe. Alexander Joel conducts.
