Ah, La Grande Madama Diana Damrau. Fresh from her role debut as Maria Stuarda in Zürich, she brought this iconic queen to Berlin accompanied by some equally wonderful singing actors. I know I should have mentioned this in the review, but I’ll say it anyway. I am anticipating the day she adds Anna Bolena and especially the Roberto Devereux Elisabetta I, as she will definitely knock these roles right out of the park. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Angela Meade’s mighty Queen Semiramide, Elizabeth DeShong’s sterling Arsace, Javier Camarena’s dashing Idreno, and Ildar Abdrazakov’s handsome Assur lead a cast of all-star bel canto singers. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
We have a star-studded cast headed by Diana Damrau and Javier Camarena. How well do these veterans hold up?
