Depuis, elle a fait du chemin, raflant de nombreux prix dans les concours internationaux, débutant à Salzbourg ou à l’Opéra de Rome – et donc à Paris où son timbre lumineux a déjà séduit nombre de lyricomanes. Et elle a encore une fois rayonné dans cette Adina, avec ce qu’il faut d’ironie, de sourire mutin dans la voix, de désir qui fait trembler aussi, et toujours cette lumière qui éclaire les voyelles et ouvre les sons vers le ciel : une magnifique Adina, aux couleurs du spectacle. …

Fiordiligi from Cosi fan tutte Lausanne


Jean Liermier met en scène un Cosi fan tutte ingénieux

“La soprano moldave Valentina Nafortina – naguère plébiscitée dans le rôle de Zerlina au Festival de Salzbourg – peut prétendre au palmarès des meilleures Fiordiligi du moment, grâce à une voix étoffée, parfaitement déliée dans la vocalise. Et le personnage est criant de vérité : habité à l’extrême, le chant se fait l’interprète subtil des affres de cette belle âme blessée.”

Artist Of The Week: Valentina Naforniță Seduces As Adina At the Hamburg State Opera

Valentina Naforniță is quickly becoming a leading lady in the opera world

Valentina Naforniță is quickly becoming a leading lady in the opera world. Her rise came shortly after winning the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2011 and since then she has been a main attraction at the Vienna State Opera. While Naforniță may not be a recognizable name yet in the States, this week she expands her horizons as she takes on her first performances at the Hamburg State Opera. This production at the Hamburg State Opera should find her in territory that she has dominated and for which OperaNews hailed her for stealing the show in Donizetti’s comedies. Critics have noted that she has “an alluring balance of girlish and mature colorings, she cast a seductive spell.” Posted By: Francisco Salazar 

Upcoming engagements include touring with the show The world of Hans Zimmer, “Musetta” in La bohème at Vienna State Opera and in Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and “Adina” in L’elisir d’amore at the Opéra National de Paris.

Valentina Nafornita: Nur noch Zentimeter von der Weltklasse entfernt

L’Elisir d’Amore (Der Liebestrank), Gaetano Donizetti Hamburgische Staatsoper, 6. April 2017

Eine Opernproduktion, die schon vierzig Jahre auf dem Buckel hat, kann trotzdem noch immer überzeugen: Das bewies die 159. Vorstellung von Gaetano Donizettis „L’Elisir d’Amore“ an der Hamburgischen Staatsoper am Donnerstagabend. Dies lag aber nicht an der braven Inszenierung und schon gar nicht am Dirigat, sondern an zwei Solisten, die ganz überzeugend sangen: Dovlet Nurgeldiyev als armer Bauer Nemorino und Valentina Nafornita als reiche, junge Pächtern Adina.

Für viele Sternminuten im Haus an der Dammtorstraße sorgte vor allem die Moldawierin Valentina Nafornita, Jahrgang 1987. Ihr Sopran berührte von der ersten Minute an und überstrahlte alle anderen Solisten auf der Bühne.

Nafornitas Präsenz ist einmalig, ihr Timbre unverwechselbar. Dieser Juwel, das war zu hören, ist nur noch Zentimeter von der Weltklasse entfernt. Diese Sopranistin singt federleicht, betörend, ausdrucksstark und völlig ohne Kraft – man spürt: Singen ist ihr Ding, dafür braucht sie sich nicht anzustrengen. Sie legt einfach los, als ob sie pfeifen würde. Ihre Koloraturen perlen wunderbar. In ihrer Stimme spiegelt sich die komplette Adina wieder: noch ein wenig – das ist in keinster Weise abwertend – ein Backfisch und doch schon eine reife, junge Frau. Das können nur ganz wenige Sängerinnen in ihrem Alter… Complete review here

Zerlina Don Giovanni

Salzburg Festival

“It is rare for Zerlina to be the highlight of Don Giovanni, but such was the case. Moldovan soprano Valentina Naforniţă has the soubrette charm of Graziella Sciutti with the vocal panache of Lucia Popp. A fabulous stage presence, flawless vocal technique and pristine vibrato-less colour made this Zerlina an absolute joy. Viva Zerlina and la libertà!”
Bachtrack, August 2016

“Valentina Naforniţă chirps Zerlina enchantingly”
Wiener Zeitung, August 2016

August 2016

Donizetti Don Pasquale

Wiener Staatsoper

“the young Moldavian singer Valentina Nafornita, lovely as can be, with the vocal charm of a Graziella Sciutti and a delightful stage presence, gave him a sparkling counterpart in Norina”
Opera Online, April 2016

“Valentina Naforniţă sparkled as a glamor girl with courage and a vocally strong performance, where she expertly used the drama in her voice.”
Wiener Zeitung, April 2016

“Valentina Naforniţă appears as a model of youthful beauty as Norina to employ with relish a considerable range of comedic talent.”
Der Standard, April 2016

“The Norina of Valentina Naforniţă is almost perfect, she skilfully delivers its demanding vocal line… to praise her appearance would be like carrying coals to Newcastle. She knows how to wear her costumes with relish.”
Merker Online, April 2016

Christmas in Vienna 2015

Wiener Konzerthaus

“Valentina Naforniţă from Moldova sang “Laudate Dominum” by Mozart and a Moldavian Christmas carol with a bell-pure soprano and charming smile in a blue evening gown.”
Kurier, December 2015

Enescu Chansons de Clément Marot 

George Enescu International Festival

“It left a restrained yet indelible impression – Bychkov drawing a poised response that underpinned Naforniţa’s elegance to telling effect.”
Classical Source, October 2015

Edinburgh International Festival Recital

Queen's Hall

“Hers is quite a rich voice, not at all thin, with a hint of luxury around the middle register and at times a touch of huskiness at the top… The sensual colour of her middle register makes her perfect for the alluringly seamless melodies of Fauré but, as her Liszt repeatedly showed, she also has a fantastic technique, with an ability to shade and temper her voice within a single note.”
Seen and Heard International, August 2015

“Listening to soprano Valentina Nafornita at The Queen’s Hall yesterday morning, it was abundantly clear why she walked off with the coveted BBC Cardiff Singer of the World title four years ago, aged just 24….Captivating and charming in her presentation, the voice is full-bodied, rich and at times sounded more like a mezzo in the opening four songs by Fauré.”
WOW247, August 2015

Norina – Don Pasquale

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita stole the show, with a tantalizingly lush and expressive account that never lacked for dramatic inspiration or musical intelligence. With an alluring balance of girlish and mature colorings, she cast a seductive spell… She was by turns delicate, coy, frothy and brazen”
Opera News, August 2015

“The young Valentina Nafornita not only has a model’s figure… She also sings with great ability to modulate all high notes and coloratura necessary.”
Opernnetz, May 2015

“Valentina Nafornita as Norina, this time looks like a model, moving confidently on the catwalk of seduction…”
Kurier, April 2015

“Valentina Nafornita has obvious pleasure at the part of Norina, which Ms. Brook has reinterpreted as a young actress. The slender body hugged in vamp outfits, she is a beastly little whirlwind who switches on her brilliant top notes.”
Wiener Zeitung, April 2015

Pamina – Die Zauberflöte

Wiener Staatsoper

“There was a pleasant appearance from Valentina Nafornita – who was replacing the ill Genia Kühmeier. She crafted a self-confident, even vocally intense Pamina.”

“The Moldovian soprano was gorgeous – both vocally and theatrically! The great aria (finally thanks to Adam Fisher, was not too slow), the scene with Tamino, and the duet with Papageno (with men) were the highlights of the show.”

Merker Online, January 2015

Musetta – La bohème

Wiener Staatsoper

“Never the less it was a special treat to see the singer blossoming into an audience favourite…. She ‘steals the show’ as they say in English.”

“Nichtsdestotrotz war es ein besonderes Vergnügen, die Sängerin, die sich schön langsam zum Publikumsliebling… ‘she steals the show’, wie es so schön auf englisch heißt.”

Merker Online, November 2014

First Nymph – Rusalka

Wiener Staatsoper

“The smaller parts were also a joy: Gabriel Bermúdez (Heger) and Stephanie Houtzeel (Küchenjunge) presented a vocal luxury, as did the three perfectly matched Nymphs, led by Valentina Naforniţa.”

Merker Online, November 2014

August 2014

Zerlina – Don Giovanni

Salzburger Festspiele

“On the female side, the best voice of the evening was Valentina Naforniţa: She was iridescent, varying between the innocence of her straight tone and her veiled sensuality represented by the shimmering piano phrases.”
Die Presse, July 2014

“and the Viennese rising star Valentina Nafornita. The attractive soprano from Moldova thrilled as Zerlina not only with erotic elegance but also with a wonderful range of sound – an international star is growing.”
Peter Dusek, Online Merker, July 2014

“Valentina Naforniţa as Zerlina is the second big surprise of this Salzburg opera season opening. Precise, slender, her soprano is cultivated and totally inspired.”
Christoph Schmitz, Deutschlandfunk, July 2014

“Valentina Naforniţa, however, is no soubrette. Rather, with her enlightened soprano, she enhances vocally the role of the socially significant Zerlina.”
Peter Hagmann, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, July 2014

“Perfect vocal sensuality exuded from Valentina Naforniţa as Zerlina… From the ladies, only Valentina Naforniţa’s sensual Zerlina offered a festival-worthy performance.”
Ernst Naredi-Rainer, Kleine Zeitung, July 2014

Gala Concert with Elina Garanča

“The rising star from the Vienna State Opera, Valentina Nafornita – the soprano from Moldova was a delightful Norina from Donizetti’s Don Pasquale”

Der Neue Merker, July 2014

Adina – L’elisir d’amore

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Naforniţa, who is playing starring roles in Rigoletto and Don Pasquale next season, scores with her sympathetic, coquettish naturalness. Vocally, she copes with Adina with her distinctive soprano, that can also effectively bring out the main points at the top of the range.”

Die Presse, May 2014

Gilda – Rigoletto

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita possesses the essential virtues for an ideal Gilda. Her sylph-like figure and youthful demureness, accompanied by her bright and pure soprano convince beyond doubt. In addition, she paces the role well, cleverly juxtaposing her registers and corresponding colour variations to good effect and generally providing adequate tone for the role’s big moments…a lovely performance.”

The Opera Critic, April 2014

Musetta – La bohème

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita, characteristically energetic, feisty and full of wit, achieved success with her Musetta.”

Daniel Wagner, Wiener Zeitung, March 2014

Musetta – La bohème

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita stood out from the rest of the ensemble.”

Die Presse, December 2013

Papagena – Die Zauberflöte

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentia Nafornita leaves no wish unfulfilled…”

Die Presse, November 2013

Die Presse


“Valentina Nafornita made the leap from a small village in Moldova on the great opera stages of the world. Now she tells how that came about.”

Gilda – Rigoletto 

Bayerische Staatsoper

“Valentina Naforniţa’s wonderful Gilda, with blooming soprano, was designed as a girlish, dreamy young woman who in search of an unprecedented mother’s love falls into the careless hands of the Duke, and eventually sacrifices herself for her great love. With very delicate, thin voice, she comforts the father and disappears in the darkness of the stage… massive cheering for Naforniţa at the curtain call… a worthy contribution to the Verdi year.”

Der Neue Merker, October 2013

Oscar — Un Ballo in Maschera

Berliner Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita’s performance was one of the highlights of the evening. The accuracy and the impact she puts into notes is literally fascinating.”

Clorinda – La Cenerentola

Wiener Staatsoper

“Valentina Nafornita and Magarita Gritskova were the beautiful daughters of this cryptic Buffo; both were vocally striking and agile, providing the lively and effervescent upper voices for the quintets and sextets.

Die Presse, January 2013

Gilda – Rigoletto

Teatro alla Scala

“For their last production of the 2011/12 season, Verdi’s Rigoletto, La Scala in Milan […] cast Valentina Naforniţa, a rising star amongst sopranos, as Gilda. […]

The performance on 8th November was the house debut at La Scala, Milan, for 25 year old Moldovian soprano Valentina Naforniţa , as well as her role debut as Gilda, who goes willingly to her death out of love for the duke. Winner of the renowned BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2011, and member of the Ensemble at the Wiener Staatsoper since last year, Naforniţa’s voice was crystal-clear, yet warm and expressive, and she struck her high notes as if on a glass harmonica”.

Opera Notes, November 2012

Musetta – La bohème

Wiener Staatsoper

“Making her role debut, Valentina Naforniţa looked as if she had come straight out of a Dior advert. She was perfectly cast as the much-courted Musetta, both visually and vocally”.
“Musetta was also drawn from the ensemble: Valentina Naforniţa, the very incarnation of this figure, played and sang the role with a big heart and soul; this was a memorable debut”.

Wiener Zeitung, December 2012

Marzelline – Fidelio

Wiener Staatsoper

“Especially exciting is company member Valentina Naforniţa, the new Marzellina, singing in a light and brightly toned soprano voice with audibly explosive potential”.

Die Presse, October 2012

Lisa – La Sonnambula

Wiener Staastoper

“Naforniţa can boast the stature and grace of a ballerina which, coupled with her bell-like soprano and impressive stage presence, amply demonstrated that she is an ensemble member with undoubted promise for the future.”

Opera Critic, February 2012

BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition

“Valentina Naforniţa… sent the audience into ecstasies in her earlier round: she is a ravishing stage presence with a naturally vibrant voice, rich in the middle and silver at the top. Her ability to suggest character made her ‘Regnava nel silenzio’ from Lucia di Lammermoor totally credible… suggested a stamina that augurs well for a starry future.”

Opera Magazine August 2011


Wien / Staatsoper – Mozarts Idomeneo, February 2019


Aus fünfjährigem Dornröschenschlaf wachgeküsst

Eine wahre Freude ist Valentina Nafornita, die sich gleich im 1. Akt mit der wehmutsvollen Klage „Padre, germani, addio“ als Ilia einführt und in der Arie „Se il padre perdei“ gefühlvoll von den Holzbläsern begleitet wird. Eine anmutige Performance.
