Pretty Yende Cancels Rossini Opera Festival Concert

By Francisco Salazar

Pretty Yende has canceled her concert at the Rossini Opera Festival.

The festival said that “for health reasons, Pretty Yende had to renounce her participation in the concert on August 12. The concert was canceled.”

As a result, audiences will receive a refund or will be allowed to choose another show.

Yende recently performed at the Festival della Valle d’Itiria and in Kosovo at the Rame Lahaj & Friends’ Gala Night. The soprano is also coming off a production of “La Traviata” at the Teatro San Carlo. Yende is set to return to the stage in September for a production of “The Magic Flute” in Paris. She is also set to perform at the San Francisco Opera in “La Traviata.”

The Rossini Opera Festival runs through August 21 and is currently presenting productions of “Otello,” “Le Comte Ory,” and “La Gazzetta.”
