Diana Damrau delivered a brilliant performance with her role debut in the title role of Donizetti´s Maria Stuarda at the Opera Zurich together with Nicolas Testé as Giorgio Talbot.
The Bavarian, whose home have been the most famous concert stages in the world for many years, confirms her fame also with this role debut. She shows the human development of the Scottish queen from the vengeful prisoner via her sublimation to the calm acceptance of her death sentence absolutely believable. She has a voice available for which there seems to be no limit. Her coloraturas are stunning, the vocal range impressive and the dynamic nuances breathtaking. Damrau forms, in short, a class of its own. Neue Zürcher Zeitung
