The English-born Australian soprano (TDO debut) made her European debut in 2007 as Donizetti’s Lucia. Since then, she has been particularly acclaimed for bel canto heroines, most recently singing the title role/Linda di Chamounix earlier this season in Florence. Pratt has starred at La Scala, the Arena di Verona, the Teatro La Fenice, the Teatro San Carlo, Pesaro’s Rossini Opera Festival, and Rome’s Accademia di Santa Cecilia. She has also earned critical praise at the Metropolitan Opera and the leading houses of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Zurich, London, Hamburg, and Paris. Among the major conductors with whom she has collaborated are Rizzi, Noseda, Nagano, Dudamel, and Minkowski, among many others. Pratt has recorded numerous rarely heard works, among them Rossini’s Otello and Vaccai’s La sposa di Messina, both on CD; and, on DVD, Verdi’s Giovanna d’Arco (Festival Valle d’Itria); Rossini’s Adelaide di Borgogna, Ciro in Babilonia, and Aureliano in Palmira (all at the Rossini Opera Festival); and Donizetti’s Le convenienze ed inconvenienze teatrali (La Scala). In 2016 her first solo album, Serenade, was released by Opus Arte.
