On Thursday, Feb. 4, the Palm Beach Opera will host its 2016 Gala – An Evening with Diane Damrau at The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach. The glamorous black-tie event, which begins at 6:30 p.m., will feature cocktails, a three-course dinner, and an intimate concert by the soprano superstar.
Diane Damrau has been referred to as the “leading colatura soprano in the world” and continues to delight her audience with her voice and stage presence. She is a “regular” at some of the most well-known opera companies across the world and a crowd favorite at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
Damrau has an extensive list of performances an operatic achievements, and regularly works with renowned conductors such as Sir Colin Davis and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. In addition to her operatic achievements, Damrau has established herself as one of the finest lieder (a type of romantic German song typically for solo voice with piano accompaniment) singers of today. She has performed recitals with pianists such as Helmut Deutsch at venues like Berlin’s Philharmonic.
Undoubtedly, Damrau will wow the attendees of the Palm Beach Opera’s 2016 Gala just as she has stunned audiences all over the world for years.
