Elvira in Bellini’s ‘I Puritani’ at Wiener Staatsoper

Pretty Yende stars as Elvira in John Dew’s magnificent production of Bellini’s I Puritani on May 20, 24, 28, & June 2 at Wiener Staatsoper. Her previous portrayal at the Metropolitan Opera garnered critical acclaim from Seen and Heart International, saying, “Yende triumphed in the part of Elvira with a marvelous voice, well-handled and with superb agilities, and a great facility in the high part of the tessitura.”

Under the baton of Francesco Lanzillotta, Ms. Yende stars alongside Roberto Tagliavini as Sir Giorgio, John Osborn as Lord Arturo Talbo, Igor Golovatenko as Sir Riccardo Forth, Ilja Kazakov as Lord Gualtiero Valton, Carlos Osuna as Sir Bruno Roberton, and Margaret Plummer as Enriquetta di Francia.
