Just announced – Olga Pudova will step in for Diana Damrau in Lucia di Lammermoor at Bayerische Staatsoper tomorrow and Friday. Olga made her debut at this house as Königin der Nacht last summer, followed by two performances of Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann alongside Ms Damrau to high critical acclaim.
David Karlin wrote for Bachtrack: “Olga Pudova was outstandingly good, the sweetness of the voice, timing and intonation never faltering. She also clearly adores doing the role, executing the “clockwork running down” moves brilliantly and staying in character through the extended applause at the end of Les oiseaux dans la charmille.”
Olga will find herself in a stellar cast tomorrow including Piotr Beczala and Ludovic Tézier. Olga performs on 12 and 15 December 2017. More information here.
Toi toi toi Olga!
