Our Twitter Q&A has now happened. You can read it in full here.

On Friday 12 July, soprano Ermonela Jaho will be joining us for a live Q&A on Twitter at 6pm.

What we’ll be asking her is up to you, so send us your questions via the comments area below or on Twitter using the hashtag #AskTheSinger. You might want to ask her about her favourite roles, how she prepares before taking to the stage, or her thoughts on Puccini's La rondine - the work she is due to perform with The Royal Opera.

Ermonela came to prominence  as Violetta in La traviata, replacing the indisposed Anna Netrebko at short notice in 2008. Since then she's returned in the role, as well as singing the title role in Suor Angelica in 2011. She will return to Covent Garden in the 2013/14 Season to sing the role of Mimi in La bohème.

We’ll ask Ermonela a selection of your questions from 6pm on the day, so make sure you follow us on Twitter before then. Recent Q&As include ‘twinterviews’ with Joyce DiDonato and John Tomlinson as well as The Royal Ballet’s Marianela Nunez and Thiago Soares and Yuhui Choe.

What would you like to ask Ermonela Jaho?

  1. Puccini, Verdi, Massenet, Donizetti, Bizet, Rossini. You have a lot of Italian and French opera on your repetoire. Do you have plans to take on some German or Russian roles in future as well?
