In 2013 and 2014 she made her debut at the Staatsoper in Vienna and at the Arena di Verona, at Salzburg Festival, and at the “Settimane mozartiane” (“Mozart weeks”) playing the role of Giunia in Lucio Silla. She has been Zerbinetta in Ariadne aud Naxos in Hamburg and Marfa in The Tzar’s Bride at Berlin’s Staatsoper and at La Scala, in Milan. She has made her debut at the Zurich Opera playing the role of Gilda in Rigoletto and at New York’s Met performing I puritani. She returned to Aix-en-Province and Munich as Fiorilla in Il turco in Italia. She has interpreted the role of Amenaide in Tancredi in Moscow and that of Adina at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples and at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin.
