Pour sa prise de rôle, Pretty Yende, révélation de la soirée, campe une Violetta rayonnante, avec sa voix pleine, mordante, dont il émane une grande émotion.

La Traviata at the Paris Opera

Quote: La Croix

“… it was clear that Yende’s voice was going to handle the role quite well when she sang her first phrase“Flora, amici, la note che resta.” Most light voices suffer here and are unheard over the orchestra, but this was not the case with the South African soprano’s singing, as her beautiful, velvet timbre and the low C projected amply. The roulades in the duet with Alfredo seemed easy and precise, like she was laughing at him.”
