Desdemona in Otello at the Bayerische Staatsoper
After making her triumphant role debut as Desdemona in Verdi’s Otello at the Wiener Staatsoper earlier this season, Ms. Willis-Sørensen has been asked to step in for soprano Anja Harteros, to perform the same role at the Bayerische Staatsoper on May 27th, 30th and June 2nd. Her interpretation of the role was praised by KURIER-Wertung who stated: “a strong-voiced Desdemona who shines in the lyrical passages. You don’t hear this part so deeply touching today”. This time, Daniele Rustioni conducts the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and the Chorus of the Bayerische Staatsoper. Ms. Willis-Sørensen is joined by Arsen Soghomonyan as Otello and Luca Salsi as Jago.
