Dear friends and fans, I am shaking as I type this... I will be going to Paris to debut as Marguerite de Valois in the new production of LES HUGUENOTS, replacing Diana Damrau. This is a huge opportunity for me and I'm so grateful to have the chance to sing a beloved French role like this one at the Opéra national de Paris (@operadeparis) , at the Bastille.
The cast is incredible, including some of my favorite singers in the world!! Bryan Hymel (@bryanhymelofficial) , Ermonela Jaho (@ermonelajaho) , Karine Deshayes (@karinedeshayesmezzo) , Nicolas Testé and conducted by the ever incredible Michele Mariotti. We open September 28th, just one day before my birthday this year. I can't think of a more welcome, more extravagantly wonderful gift than this.
I'll send more information as I have it, but for now...let's just enjoy this moment!! #leshuguenots#meyerbeer#paris#parosopera#opera#castchange#nicolastesté#michelemariotti#operasinger#huguenots

I’m so pleased to be back onstage tonight for the Spring Gala singing with wonderful colleagues and incredibly great Ballet dances and awesome chorus with fantastic Kids chorus. Are you joining us tonight? I cannot wait to sing for you tonight💕🤗💕and most thrilled to make music with Maestro Antonio Pappano. #OmbreLegere#Dinorah#Meyerbeer#Dreams#prettyjourney
Wilhelm Richard Wagner (22 May 1813 – 13 February 1883) was a #German#composer , theatre director, polemicist and #conductor who is chiefly known for his operas (or, as some of his later works were later known, "music dramas"). Unlike most #opera composers, Wagner wrote both the libretto and the music for each of his stage works. Initially establishing his reputation as a composer of works in the romantic vein of Carl Maria #vonWeber and Giacomo #Meyerbeer , Wagner revolutionised opera through his concept of the #Gesamtkunstwerk , by which he sought to synthesise the poetic, visual, musical and dramatic arts, with music subsidiary to drama. He described this vision in a series of essays published between 1849 and 1852. #Wagner realised these ideas most fully in the first half of the four-opera cycle 'Der Ring des Nibelungen'.
His compositions, particularly those of his later period, are notable for their complex textures, rich harmonies and orchestration, and the elaborate use of leitmotifs — musical phrases associated with individual characters, places, ideas, or plot elements. His advances in musical language, such as extreme chromaticism and quickly shifting tonal centres, greatly influenced the development of classical music. His 'Tristan und Isolde' is sometimes described as marking the start of modern music.
