Violeta Urmana Hailed the Lithuanian Queen of Opera

Soprano Violeta Urmana graces the cover of Bravissimo magazine (Dec 2010/Jan 2011) to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the Lithuanian National Opera. She will appear as Leonora in La Forza del Destino during Opera Week, as well singing a New Year's Eve concert with husband Alfredo Nigro for the festivities.

“Violeta Urmana is a very rare and exceptional phenomenon not only in Lithuania, but also in the context of all other opera soloists in the whole world. It is enough for her to simply step on stage - one immediately wants to stand up out of respect, such strong is her personal magic. It seems that all applause is dedicated to her only, even if her role in the opera is not the main one... She is an exceptionally bright personality and unique not only because of her outstanding voice, but also because of the personal qualities.” (Gintautas Kėvišas, G
eneral Manager- Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre)
