Information:

With Dreams, Pretty Yende also refers to her very own fairytale that continues today. Her fairytale-like ascent, reflected in her debut album A Journey, has been all the more remarkable for beginning only at the age of 16 in the small remote town of Piet Retief, about 200 miles from Johannesburg. Her life was transformed when she heard Delibes's "Flower Duet" from Lakmé on a British Airways TV commercial. Although she knew nothing about opera at first, she was so seduced by the magical sound of the duet that she immediately determined to pursue her path as an opera singer. Her career flourished with extraordinary rapidity with her international breakthrough at the Metropolitan Opera at only 27. Invited with barely a month notice, Pretty Yende gained dazzling recognition for her role debut in Rossini's Le Comte Ory starring opposite to Juan Diego Flórez. Immediately afterwards she replaced an indisposed Cecilia Bartoli in the same role at the Theater an der Wien.
