Pretty Yende

Weill Recital Hall
Pretty Yende earned standing ovations when she made her 2013 Metropolitan Opera debut in Rossini’s Le comte Ory. Of that performance, The New York Times said, “Her voice has a luminous sheen … She delivered some of the most difficult coloratura passages with scintillating precision.” And The Telegraph said of her solo recital, “Possessed of diamanté tone and a megawatt smile, the young South African soprano Pretty Yende seems to take charge of the stage wherever she goes.”
