“As she did two years ago, Diana Damrau sang the role of Lucia. It was again a triumph for her: she is the great Lucia of the twenty-first century and, in my opinion, one of the greatest of all time. Diana Damrau is no longer the light soprano of 10 or 12 years ago, and she has been eliminating characters like Zerbinetta or The Queen of the Night from her repertoire. She has become a lyrical soprano with an excellent middle range and maintains her spectacular vocal technique. To this one must add that she is a real actress, who gives a lot of life to the characters she plays. Her Lucia di Lammermoor reminds one of Maria Callas and her ilk, not of the many light sopranos who have interpreted the role … a great performance by a great artist.”
