Singer replacement in Le Comte Ory
Cecilia Bartoli regretfully had to drop out of her singer engagements for the next premiere of Le comte Ory on 16th of February as well as for the following performance on the 18th of February at Theater an der Wien because of health problems concerning influenzal infection.
Within a short time the Theater an der Wien could win South African soprano Pretty Yende to replace her colleague and to sing the role of Comtesse Adèle she is very familiar with.
The young rising star Pretty Yende succeeded in this role already in January and February 2013 at the Metropolitan Opera in New York alongside with Juan Diego Florez.
Premiere Le Comte Ory: 16 February 2013, 7 pm
Further performances: 18, 20, 23, 25 & 27 February, 7 pm
