Valentina Nafornita joins a distinguished group of performers at the Wiener Konzerthaus on 19 December 2015 for the annual ‘Christmas in Vienna’ concert. Erwin Ortner conducts the ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester and soloists that include mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager, tenor Piotr Beczala, and baritone Artur Rucinski. The programme features both classical and popular selections, including Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, Handel’s Oh Lovely Peace, and John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War is over).
In the New Year, Nafornita returns to the Wiener Staatsoper to sing Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Musetta in La bohéme, and Norina in Don Pasquale. She also appears alongside Juan Diego Flórez, Joyce DiDonato, and John Chest as Sophie in Les Grandes Voix’s production of Massenet’s Werther at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.
