Diana Damrau: Bizet The Pearl Fishers, Metropolitan Opera (Leila's Aria Act 1)

Singer: Diana Damrau

DVD and Blu-Ray out now: When recently staged at the Metropolitan Opera in New York it proved a major success, both for the production by Penny Woolcock and the musical performance, conducted by Paolo Noseda, with (once again) Diana Damrau as the priestess Leïla and, as the two men competing for love, the tenor Matthew Polenzani (Nadir) and the baritone Mariusz Kwiecien (Zurga). Woolcock’s concept brought the production up to date, with photographic and video references to the 2004 tsunami, and offered a superb ‘aquatic’ spectacle during the overture: the whole stage appeared to be beneath the Indian Ocean and acrobatic divers ‘swam’ down from the surface (located in the flies of the theatre). As the New York Times wrote: “Ms. Woolcock’s updating of “The Pearl Fishers” works beautifully ... Ms. Damrau brings brilliant coloratura agility, radiant sound and charisma galore to the role of Leila.”
