Soprano Pretty Yende sings at Central Park with Andrea Bocelli


The soprano Ana María Martínez joined Mr. Bocelli for the impassioned duet “Vicino a te,” from Giordano’s “Andrea Chénier.” And the soprano Pretty Yende was his partner in the “O soave fanciulla” duet from Puccini’s “Bohème.” But once again, other than the announcement of her name, there was no introduction of Ms. Yende, a young artist from South Africa who was a co-winner of Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition this summer.
