Dreams

Pretty Yende
Description:
Pretty Yende continues her meteoric rise through the world of opera. Her debut album A Journey received the Solo Recital Recording award at the 2017 International Opera Awards and critics were unanimous in showering praise on the beauty of Yende's voice and the intelligence of her singing. 'Hers is a lyric coloratura voice of real beauty and flexibility' (Gramophone). 'She displays not only a top-class vocal and dramatic technique but also a high-wire artist's courage and confidence. It's the sheer brilliance of her attack that leaves audiences around the world clamouring for more.' (Daily Mail).

The celebrated 'mad scene' from Lucia, a role which she will also perform in New York next season, was the starting point of her new recording 'Dreams'. 'My instinct was to look at mad scenes,' she says. 'But then I widened my horizons, and thought about characters who have found an escape in their dream lives. All the characters I sing here have a dream: for some it is positive, for others it is a kind of nightmare. They dream of a better life, or a prince charming, or being able to live free from fear. I wanted to explore what dreams and madness mean for each character.'
