image of Opera is my Hobby August 1st, 20081 August: The Great Career of the French Coloratura Soprano Natalie Dessay

It is claimed that Natalie Dessay is now the most famous French singer in the world. After studying music and voice at the Bordeaux Conservatory, she has gone on swiftly to a wonderful international operatic career, starting by winning the International Mozart competition at Vienna. Her brilliant coloratura voice soon found her singing opera and concerts at Paris, Lyons, and La Scala, Milan. By 1994, when she was about thirty, she was singing at the Met, and nowadays she is in demand all over the world to sing the role of Zerbinetta in Richard Strauss's ARIADNE AUF NAXOS. This year she is also very busy in bel-canto roles such as Lucia in Donizetti's LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR.
