Otello at the Wiener Staatsoper
This fall, Ms. Willis-Sørensen continues her portrayal of Verdi heroines as she returns to the Wiener Staatsoper to perform the role of Desdemona in Don Carlos alongside Jonas Kaufmann as the title-role and Ludovic Tézier as Jago. Her initial performance in this role also took place at the Wiener Staatsoper and was met with great acclaim, as was her interpretation during her LA Opera debut earlier in the year. Opera Today commended her performance, stating: “Mme. Willis-Sørensen brings a full-bodied, mature voice to Desdemona, and consummate artistry in her delivery.” This acclaimed adaptation of Shakespeare’s original work tells a gripping story that delves into the complexities of human emotions pushed to their limits. This production by Adrian Noble is conducted by Maestro Alexander Soddy.
Performances are set for October 25th, 28th, 31st and November 3rd. Tickets and more information can be found here.
