In September 2019, she made her debut in the role of Turandot in the wonderful Greek Theatre of Taormina in Italy and in the Theatre of Siracusa, alongside the famous tenor Marcello Giordani and directed by Enrico Stinchelli. An incredible success, which has left both public and critics astonished. Thrilling 20-minute applause and a standing ovation of 10,000 people in the Syracuse theatre.
