Following a triumphant debut at the Metropolitan Opera, Nadine Sierra heads to Italy for two company debuts: In January and February of 2016, the American soprano reprises her acclaimed Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto for her debut with Teatro alla Scala. Starring opposite Vittorio Grigolo and Piero Pretti as the Duke of Mantua and the legendary Leo Nucci in the title role, Nadine sings in Gilbert Deflo’s production conducted by Mikko Franck. Performances run January 13 through February 6.
While in Italy, Nadine ushers in the New Year with her Teatro la Fenice debut in Venice. Guesting in the annual “Concerto di Capodanno,” she sings with conductor James Conlon and tenor Celso Albelo on December 30 and January 1.
