‘Les Huguenots’ now available for streaming

Rachel Willis-Sorensen

Ms. Willis-Sørensen was praised for her “opulent low notes, triumphant upper register,”  and “dramatic investment that brought the audience to their feet” (Opéra Magazine) when she made her debut as Valentine in Meyerbeer’s Les Huguenots in February at the Grand Théâtre de Genève. Her stellar performance in this rarely performed opera can now be streamed online here until May 17th.

This new Jossi Wieler production was conducted by Marc Minkowski, (whom she worked with at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden when she sang Donna Anna in Don Giovanni), Ana Durlovski sings the role of Marguerite de Valois, John Osborn and Mert Süngü share the role of Raoul de Nangis, Michele Pertusi sings Marcel, Léa Desandre sings Urbain, Laurent Alvaro sings Le Comte de Saint-Bris, Alexandre Duhamel sings Le Comte de Nevers, and Anicio Zorzi Giustiniani sings De Tavannes.
