Ailyn Pérez revisits her signature role of Violetta from Verdi’s La Traviata for two performances at the Bayerische Staatsoper on June 28 and July 1. Marco Armiliato conducts the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and Chor der Bayerischen Staatsoper in Günter Krämer’s exemplary production, with Ms. Pérez sharing the stage with a spectacular cast including Atalla Ayan as Alfredo and Plácido Domingo as Germont. Ailyn has previously garnered critical acclaim for her stunning portrayal of this tragic opera heroine:

“But the evening belonged, as it should, to Ailyn Pérez as Violetta, who gave an extraordinary performance. The late Joan Sutherland, arguably Covent Garden’s greatest Violetta, said that everything was based on technique. Pérez displayed complete mastery of her voice, with technical confidence at a level which freed her to do amazing things. She sang the high powered coloratura passages with aplomb, but what really amazed me was her ability to hit a high note in the softest pianissimo without a hint of a wobble, even after a fast glissando.” (Bachtrack)
