Jessica Pratt (soprano)
& Vincenzo Scalera (piano)
Her voice shines, her agile coloratura gleams with lyrical grace. Jessica Pratt, who was born in Australia and started off on the trumpet, is one of the world's leading belcanto sopranos. After singing the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor for the first time, while making her European debut in 2007, she has enjoyed great success with it in more than thirty productions in leading houses all over the world. She sings the title role in a new production of Mercadante's Francesca da Rimini at Oper Frankfurt in early 2023. Her discography includes Rossini's Otello, Vaccais La sposa di Messina and DVD/Blu-Ray recordings of Giovanna d‘Arco from the Festival Valle d’Itria and Rossini's Adelaide di Borgogna, Ciro in Babilonia and Aureliano in Palmira at the Rossini Opera Festival. Her first solo album was released by Opus arte in 2016, which was followed by DVDs of Lucia di Lammermoor (dir: Luca Ronconi) and Donizetti's Rosmonda d’Inghilterra. Now you can hear her giving her first recital in Frankfurt, with her accompanist Vincenzo Scalera.
