Kristine Opolais sings famous Italian opera arias Latvian National Opera


Critics celebrate her, audiences adore her: Metropolitan Opera star Kristine Opolais is without a doubt a “prima donna” in the best sense. As soloist in this concert at the Latvian National Opera she shines once more, accompanied by the Latvian National Symphonic Orchestra under the baton of the talented maestro Sesto Quatrini.

Verdi, Puccini, Mascagni, Saint-Saëns, Boito, Catalani… the inspiration for this concert program is essentially italian. Opolais’s performances of some of these arias launched her career, while others are new additions to her repertoire perfectly suited her dark and luxurious soprano timbre.
