Pretty Yende, one of the most thrilling new voices to have emerged in recent years, returns to London for her second UK appearance.

The South African soprano showcases her considerable range with a delightful programme from the bel canto repertoire of Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini to the French melodies of Delibes, Bizet and Poulenc. Her programme also includes Sierras de Granada by Giménez and songs by the rarely-heard early 20th-century operetta composer Victor Herbert.

‘Diamanté tone, a megawatt smile… a soprano of real musical intelligence.’ (Daily Telegraph, June 2013)
