The Festival International de Musique Saint-Georges has announced Guadeloupéenne coloratura soprano Léïla Brédent will headline its 2023 festival.

Brédent will perform works by Mozart, “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio!” and “No, no, che non sei capace” at the season finale concert on Nov 24. She will be accompanied by the Saint-Georges Festival Orchestra, under the direction of Artistic and Music Director Marlon Daniel.

Brédent frequently performs in stage productions and in concert settings around the world.
