Diana Damrau


German coloratura soprano Diana Damrau was born in Gunzberg in 1971 and trained at the Hochschule für Musik in Würzberg, and sang her first roles at the city’s Mainfranken Theater. Endowed with a sizeable voice of prodigious agility and a diamantine high register, her signature-role is Mozart’s Queen of the Night, which she has performed at houses including La Scala, the Metropolitan Opera, the Bavarian State Opera, the Vienna State Opera and Covent Garden (productions from the latter two venues are available on DVD). Her repertoire also includes Gilda in Rigoletto, Violetta in La Traviata, Leïla in Les pecheurs de Perles, Lucia di Lammermoor, Humperdinck’s Gretel, Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier, Susanna and the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro and Elvira in I puritani, all available on DVD.
