Nadine Sierra, the new face of opera

American soprano Nadine Sierra has been tipped as the new face of opera after stealing the spotlight at the world's top opera houses and in the pages of Vogue. At just 29, she's already had her curtain call at the Met, La Scala, Berlin and Paris State Operas.

She’s breathing new life into the Paris opera season, starring in Cavalli's "Elio-gabalo" and Mozart's "The Magic Flute". Following her breakout Met debut as Gilda in "Rigoletto", Nadine Sierra joins us on Encore to talk about reprising the role in Paris.
