Beautiful greeks at the Royal Opera House

While checking the ROH's next year's planning, i came across the name of Vassiliki Karayanni, a young, beautiful and talented greek soprano who is planned to sing 3 performances as Olympia in "Les Contes d' Hoffmann" next to Rolando Villazón's Hoffmann and under the baton of Antonio Pappano.

This is not Karayanni's debut at the ROH as she has previously (in 2004) appeared again as Olympia .

Here's a video of Vassiliki Karayanni singing "La chanson d' Olympia" in Athens
a couple of years ago.
