Diana Damrau returns to London’s Royal Opera House this spring, to star in a new production of Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. Lucia is a signature role for Ms. Damrau, whose previous portrayals have been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike:
“Diana Damrau is undoubtedly “THE” Lucia of today. Her supreme virtuosity – which at no point expires in a mere display of vocal goods – every sung passage, note, trill, the messa di voce, grows and ascends to the expressive chiaroscuro of a soul torn by neurosis and continuously oscilates between joy and melancholy both uncontrollable, and reflected magnificently with very refined gestures . . .” – La Recensione
