Notes and Editorial Reviews
The soprano Diana Damrau stars in the operas of Mozart, Verdi, Rossini, Donizetti and Strauss, but Forever is the ‘soundtrack of her life’ in the form of much-loved numbers from operetta, musicals and the movies – including Die Fledermaus, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, The Phantom of the Opera and The Little Mermaid. “This music shows a side of me that many people don’t know yet,” she says. “These tunes are great art, because they are associated with unforgettable moments in everyone’s lives.”

REVIEW:

The operetta selections are this singer's natural habitat and there's no denying the panache and brilliance of her performances. Despite some reservations, there is still much to admire in the enthusiasm and artistry of this talented and versatile singer.
