Diana Damrau wows Paris in Lucia di Lammermoor

euronews

The tragic story of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, recently performed at the Champs-Elysées Theatre in Paris, was a triumph for its interpreters Diana Damrau and the whole cast. To movingly embody Lucia, the unfortunate heroine, there could almost be only one choice as Diana Damrau is considered one of the greatest sopranos coloratura of our times.

Diana Damrau e Nicolas Testé a Genova

il Corriere Musicale

Diana Damrau, o della gioia di fare musica. Così potrebbe intitolarsi una biografia del soprano bavarese dai capelli colore del sole, che dalla sua terra natìa ha ereditato quell’esuberanza al luppolo che prima di lei è stata cifra distintiva di altri cantanti artisticamente cresciuti nelle regioni meridionali di lingua tedesca. Quell’effervescenza bionda, spumeggiante e fresca come un buon boccale di Augustiner, il cui tratto saliente risiede in uno slancio genuino, sincero, irresistibile. La Damrau è forse una di quei pochi artisti lirici davvero maiuscoli dei nostri giorni, il cui numero è possibile contare sulle dita di una sola mano. Quelli, per intenderci, per i quali vale la pena investire qualche soldino per seguirne da vicino la carriera.
