Eleonora Buratto and Silvia Lelli

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.

Eleonora poses for Silvia Lelli wearing a little black dress from Chiara Boni – La Petite Robe and a unique custom made creation by ​the ​Colombian designer Freddy Gaviria: a silk coat with a Japanese floral print​. Diamond earrings by Iannaccone Jewelry.


Then, the soprano during her interview with Valeria Collevecchio of Italian television RAI 3.
