After seven years of refurbishing, the Staatsoper Unter den Linden is back in town to reopen her grand gates with this uplifting Beethoven symphony headed by Herr Daniel Barenboim and starring such invigorating soloists like Frau Diana Damrau, Frau Okka von der Damerau, Herr Burkhard Fritz, and Herr René Pape. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Meine verehrte, ehrwürdige und edle Dame Diana Damrau strikes again as the poignant yet youthful Antonia, the seductive yet tempestuous Giulietta, and the elusive and beautiful Stella and she is joined by a cast of veritable superstars from Michael Spyres to Olga Pudova to Nicolas Testé to Angela Brower.
A heavenly first foray into the Bayerische Staatsoper courtesy of La Grande Madame et Déesse Diana Damrau!
Meine Göttin der Musik! Meine Königin! Meine Kaiserin! Welche Wonne Sie Live wiederzusehen nach drei Jahren!
We have a star-studded cast headed by Diana Damrau and Javier Camarena. How well do these veterans hold up?
