Les Pêcheurs de Perles at Theater an der Wien

November 8, 2014

Following a “flawless” performance in the world premiere of A Harlot’s Progress, Diana Damrau returns to the Theater an der Wien to sing the role of Leila in Bizet’s exotic Les Pêcheurs de Perles this month. She is joined by an extraordinary cast, including Nathan Gunn as Zurga, Dmitry Korchak as Nadir, and Ms. Damrau’s husband Nicolas Testé as Nourabad, all featured in a brand new production directed by Lotte de Beer. Jean-Christophe Spinosi conducts the ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien and the Arnold Schoenberg Chor.

Opening night for this production is already sold out – performances take place November 16, 19, 22, 25, 28 & 30.

Coming soon: Diana Damrau’s long-awaited Lucia di Lammermoor on disc

November 2, 2014

Diana Damrau first sang Gaetano Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Five years later, in July 2013, she brought her riveting interpretation of the tragic bel canto heroine to her native Bavaria, where she was greeted with rapture. In this much-anticipated live recording from Munich’s Philharmonie Gasteig, she is joined by two splendid singers from the Mediterranean: tenor Joseph Calleja as Lucia’s lover Edgardo, and baritone Ludovic Tézier as her controlling brother Enrico.
