Although she definitely gave up performing in operas, the lyric career of Natalie Dessay continues to the delight of all. She now gives song recitals in which her acting talent continues to marvel and it is not unusual to find her on stage defending musicals where she continues to shine. The great singer who was initially a born actress was blessed with a light soprano voice. Her incredibly stratospheric voice stunned crowds and she could just as well be confined to the same roles as maid or eternal young girls during her entire career. This goes without mentioning a strong character and a slight hiccup in her career (nodules on the vocal cords), which resulted in a first great turning point for Natalie Dessay. Back on stage after months of silence, the soprano decided to tackle heavier roles like the bel canto heroines or the Traviata she dreamed to embody. But the temptation of pure theater is too strong and Natalie Dessay permits herself the incredible luxury to say goodbye to the constraints of opera productions. Today, her appearances are extremely anticipated, you need to buy your tickets early!
