Notify me when this product is available:

A modern fairy-tale. Born in in the small town of Piet Retief, South African soprano Pretty Yende has risen to the top of the opera world with unparalleled speed. Yende’s debut album celebrates the milestones of her sublime musical journey; starting at the age of 16, when she first got into touch with Opera by hearing Delibes’ Flower Duet on a television advertisement to her debut at La Scala and her international breakthrough at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. 'Possessed of diamanté tone and a megawatt smile, the young South African soprano seems to take charge of the stage wherever she goes'  (The Telegraph)
