With all the Damrau hype circulating her upcoming performance as Amina at The Metropolitan Opera's production of Bellini's La Sonnambula and a one-off (Le) Poisson Rouge show, there must be little time to find a respite from the excitement.
Taking a one-night-only breather from her run as Amina in the Metropolitan Opera's production of Bellini's La Sonnambula (March 14-April 1), Bavarian soprano Diana Damrau will perform selections from her forthcoming Erato album Forever--available Tuesday, March 11--at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Thursday, March 27.
The merits of new and old colliding are vast. The distinction between an early and late New York City is continually blurred as gentrification bleeds in both directions. That said, there may not be a more perfect blend of young and old than at the downtown dwelling (Le) Poisson Rouge, where the Metropolitan Opera has been hosting a series (starting and relating with Alexander Borodin's masterpiece, Prince Igor).
Diana Damrau, acclaimed German soprano stepped into the main role of Metropolitan Opera's La Traviata alongside Plácido Domingo, and Saimir Pirgu.
Soprano Renee Fleming will host Metropolitan Opera's Live in HD broadcast of Verdi's Rigoletto with Piotr Beczala, Željko Lucic, and Diana Damrau.
