Bernarda Bobro will replace the unwell Ermonela Jaho for the performance of La traviata on Wednesday 25 January.
The Slovenian soprano made her house debut earlier this week as Violetta in a role that has developed a reputation for unearthing operatic stars. In 1994 Angela Gheorghiu stepped into the role to huge acclaim, followed in 2008 by Ermonela Jaho and most recently Ailyn Pérez on the Royal Opera’s 2010 tour of Japan.
Bernarda arrives at The Royal Opera House following a string of performances in Oper Stuttgart’s La traviata as well as Vienna Volksopera's Die Fledermaus and Gianni Schicchi, Opera North's Roméo et Juliette, and The Cunning Little Vixen at Bregenz Festival. The soprano made her British debut in Laurent Pelly's Hänsel und Gretel at Glyndebourne in 2008.
