South African soprano Pretty Yende lives her Cinderella story. With appearances on the world’s top opera stages, she is one of todays most sought after sopranos. This upcoming season she will star in two Metropolitan Opera productions. Her first album, A Journey, received the 2017 International Opera Award for Best Recording and garnered her national press and television appearances including Good Morning America, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Wendy Williams show. Her second album, Dreams, showcases Yende’s lyric coloratura voice with signature pieces from the belcanto repertoire including Je veux vivre from Gounod`s Roméo et Juliet and Lucia’s mad scene from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. With Dreams Yende not only slips into the various dreams of young opera heroines but also pays homage to her own dream come true – becoming one of today’s most celebrated sopranos.

Pretty Yende’s journey is truly a modern day fairy-tale. Born in in the small town of Piet Retief, South Africa, Yende has risen to the top of the opera world with unparalleled speed. Her debut album celebrated the milestones of her sublime musical journey; starting at the age of 16, when she decided to sing opera after hearing Delibes’ Flower Duet on a television advertisement to her debut at La Scala and her international breakthrough at New York’s Metropolitan Opera at the
age of only 27.
