Presentation

After years on the opera stage, where her stunning lyric coloratura soprano voice and her incredible ability as an actress have enchanted audiences, the soprano Natalie Dessay said goodbye to opera in 2013 and turned her attention to acting and song. She continues to appear in recitals, particularly with the pianist Philipe Cassard, whose passion for singing has made him one of the most sought-after accompanists. Together, they will be stopping off at la Monnaie with a varied programme of French mélodies, German Lieder and even two Mozart arias.  A unique opportunity to hear again this remarkable artist.
