VIOLETTA La Traviata VERDI De Nederlandse Opera

“Soprano Joyce El-Khoury was to sing only two performance as Violetta in De Nederlandse Opera’s Spring production of La traviata…El-Khoury went on nine days early and sang the rest of the run. No one went home disappointed.  She made the high Cs at the end of Act I sound easy, but there were also hints of caramel in her well-controlled voice that gave all her arias a lovely; slightly plaintive feel.” -Robin Miller, Opera Canada
