Valentina returns to the Wiener Staatsoper this month to take the role of Pamina in Die Zauberflöte from 23 January 2016. Her previous interpretation of the role, also at Wiener Staatsoper, received widespread critical acclaim:
“[Nafornița] 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 were the highlights of the show.”

Following the opening night, there are further performances of Die Zauberflöte on 23, 27 and 30 January.
Earlier in the month, Valentina sings Marzelline in Beethoven Fidelio, also at Wiener Staatsoper. Nafornița performs under the baton of Peter Schneider alongside Albert Dohmen, Klaus Florian Vogt and Anja Kampe. Performances are on 7, 11 and 14 January.
