She is joined by a celebrated cast, including Pavol Breslik as Nemorino, Massimo Cavalletti as Belcore, and Lucio Gallo sings Dulcamara. Performances take place June 26 & 28, and July 2 & 5 at the Hauptbühne Opernhaus, with Giacomo Sagripanti leading the Philharmonia Zürich and Chor der Oper Zürich.
