In October and November, Diana Damrau joins legendary conductor Mariss Jansons and Sir Antonio Pappano in performing Strauss’ Vier letzte Lieder.

The concerts with Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, in Munich, Cologne, Antwerp and New York, also include in the program Strauss’ Four Symphonic Interludes from Intermezzo and Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, as well as a selection of other Strauss Lieder that won’t be included in the Carnegie Hall performance.

In her performances with Maestro Pappano, in Vienna, Paris and Amsterdam, she sings Vier letzte Lieder in addition to selections by Rossini, Bizet, Wagner, and Berg.

For the London and Hamburg concerts on November 13 and 15,  Ms Damrau has compiled a program together with the London Philharmonic Orchestra that lives from its nuances: both the lieder of Richard Strauss and Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 still belong clearly to the Romantic period, but the spirit of a new era can be felt throughout these scores, ambiguous and cryptic. Vladimir Jurowski leads these two performances.

See below for a full list of dates and locations.

“the leading coloratura soprano in the world”

– New York Sun

Soprano Diana Damrau has been performing on the world’s leading opera and concert stages for two decades. Her vast repertoire spans both lyric soprano and coloratura roles including the title roles in Lucia di Lammermoor (La Scala, Bavarian State Opera, Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House), Manon (Vienna State Opera, Metropolitan Opera) and La Traviata (La Scala, Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Opéra national de Paris and Bavarian State Opera) as well as Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte (Metropolitan Opera, Salzburg Festival, Vienna State Opera, Royal Opera House, Bavarian State Opera).

Invested as Kammersängerin of the Bavarian State Opera (2007) and holder of the Bavarian Maximilian Order for Science and Art (2010), Diana Damrau has forged close links with the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich where she has been seen in new productions of Lucia di Lammermoor, Les contes d’Hoffmann (the four heroines), Ariadne on Naxos (Zerbinetta), The Silent Woman (Aminta), Die Zauberflöte (Queen of the Night) and Rigoletto (Gilda). Other high profile appearances have included La Traviata (Violetta), Der Rosenkavalier (Sophie), Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Konstanze) as well as Le Nozze di Figaro (Susanna and Contessa d’Almaviva).
