Zerlina in Don Giovanni at Salzburg Festival

Valentina returns to the Salzburg Festival this summer to reprise the role of Zerlina in a revival of Sven-Eric Bechtolf’s popular production of Mozart Don Giovanni, opening 4 August 2016. Alain Altinoglu conducts the Vienna Philharmonic and an all-star cast including Ildebrando D’Arcangelo in the title role and Luca Pisaroni as Leporello.

Praise for Valentina’s Zerlina at the Salzburg Festival in 2014:

“Nafornita has astonishingly mature vocal colors and firm control over her expressive pipes. Her performance was highly nuanced, full of radiant surges, devout hushes and exquisite soft phrasings” Opera News

Valentina has just wrapped up a busy season at the Wiener Staatsoper with performances as Susanna in Mozart Le nozze di Figaro and as Adina in Donizetti l’Elisir d’amore. She can next be seen in concert at the Grafenegg Festival this September with the WRD Symphony, before returning to the Wiener Staatsoper in October.
