“Diana Damrau, Soprano Extraordinaire”

One of the operas I am most excited to see this season at the Met is Les pêcheurs de Perles starring one of my current favorite sopranos, Diana Damrau.

I last had the pleasure of hearing her sing Gilda, live, in Mayer’s production of Rigoletto. Here is a wonderful article from last week in the NYTimes all about an opera singer growing into her voice. She recently took a break from performing because she could feel her body needed rest,a smart singer. I hope we all will be able to know our bodies that well.
