Update: These performances have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Diana Damrau starts the year making her greatly anticipated debut in Richard Strauss‘ Capriccio, an opera revolving around debate that raged during the Enlightenment: what matters more, the music or the text? Who will succeed in winning the heart of the Countess Madeleine – Olivier, a poet, or Flamand, a musician?

Ms. Damrau is joined by a stellar cast, including Wolfgang Koch, Pavol Breslik, Audun Iversen, Günther Groissböck, Ekaterina Gubanova, Graham Clark, Sydney Mancasola, Xabier Anduaga and Luke Stoker. The performances, if no cancellations due to COVID-19 occur, will take place from January 26 until the February 21.

UPDATE: The Opéra de Paris has announced that following the latest government announcements, all their activities are cancelled until at least January 7. Unfortunately, this concert is included.

On December 15, the last performance of the Royal Affairs tour takes place at the Philharmonie de Paris, with Diana Damrau, Nicolas Testé, and Ivan Repušić leading the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France. The program features music by Rossini, Gounod, Delibes, Tchaikovsky, Parashkev, Verdi, Donizetti and Bellini.

Combining arias and duets from 19th century French and Italian operas, from Mary Stuart to Philip II, Norma and King Claudius, the German soprano and French bass sing the grandeur, the downfalls and the loneliness of sovereigns dear to the lyrical repertoire.

“...wie sie insgesamt den soprano drammatico d’agilità des jungen Verdi im ersten Akt belkantistisch nobilitiert und später dann mit Koloraturen verziert, das ist schon bewegende, große Klasse.”
