Catherine Naglestad sings Minnie in Opernhaus Zürich's Fanciulla del West

6 June 2014

Catherine Naglestad adds Minnie to her repertoire of great operatic heroines when she debuts in Opernhaus Zürich’s new production of La fanciulla del West.

Barrie Kosky’s production is conducted by Marco Armiliato and opens on 22 June.

Recent months have seen another significant role debut for Catherine – as Elsa in Lohengrin at Teatro Real Madrid. Her performance earned considerable critical acclaim, with Giornale della Musica noting: "It was a thrilling interpretation from Naglestad playing Elsa - beautifully highlighting the character’s inner torments."

Catherine returns to one of her most renowned roles – Tosca – later this summer in a televised, semi-staged performance with NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover conducted by Eivind Gullberg Jensen.
