Nuccia Focile To Play Adultress Playing A Hungarian Countess

"From the tragedy of grand opera to the comedy of Johann Strauss’s light hearted operetta Die Fledermaus would be a quantum leap for some of the divas of classical music, but for Italian soprano Nuccia Focile her latest role is proving to be sheer delight. As one of the world’s most admired sopranos she has played most of the great operatic roles including Nannetta in Falstaff, Violetta in La Traviata and Mimi in La Boheme and has graced the stage at La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. But as Rosalinde in
Die Fledermaus she will be coming to Llandudno’s Venue Cymru in March and is looking forward to the challenge of stepping out of her comfort zone. 'We’re having a wonderful time rehearsing. There’s lot of giggling, laughing, and dancing. It’s a sheer joy to be working on such a light hearted and funny production,' she smiled. Playing new roles is something Nuccia relishes." [Source]
