This holiday season, Pretty Yende stars as Marie in La Fille du Régiment at the Vienna State Opera. She has previously sung the role to great acclaim at The Metropolitan Opera where critics described her interpretation of the spunky character as “wonderful” and exuding “a charismatic energy that is contagious to audiences and that gives her performance great warmth.”
Performing alongside Ms. Yende is Juan Diego Flórez as Tonio, Stephanie Houtzeel as Marquise de Berkenfield, Adrian Eröd as Sergeant Sulpice, Marianne Nentwich as Duchesse de Crakentorp, and Marcus Pelz as Hortensius. Michele Spotti conducts Laurent Pelly’s joyous production of Donizetti’s comic masterpiece.
Performances occur on December 25, 28, 30, and January 2.
