After successful performances as Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen at the Lyric Opera Chicago and as Mimì in Puccini’s Boheme at Opernhaus Zurich, Eleonora Buratto spent a few days in Italy to fulfil one of her wishes: posing as a model for photographer Silvia Lelli. Silvia Lelli has long been a leading photographer of Teatro alla Scala and is now internationally recognized as one of the great photographers of orchestras, theater and arts in Italy.
Fan of Eleonora’s voice, Lelli has portrayed the soprano at the Opera House in Florence.
Operafashion exclusively features some backstage photos.
