Olga Peretyatko to replace Diana Damrau in recital

For health reasons, the soprano Diana Damrau is unfortunately obliged to cancel her visit to Geneva for the recital scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2022 at 8 pm at the Grand Théâtre de Genève.
Following this cancellation, the Grand Théâtre has the great pleasure to welcome as a replacement and on the same date the Russian soprano Olga Peretyatko, one of the most sought-after voices in recent years.
All tickets for the Diana Damrau recital remain available for the Olga Peretyatko recital. So if you want to attend this evening with Olga Peretyatko, you don’t have to do anything and simply present yourself on the evening of the recital with your Diana Damrau ticket.
If you do not wish to keep your tickets to attend the recital, please contact the box office by email [email protected].

The poets did well to conjoin music and medicine, in Apollo, because the office of medicine is but to tune the curious harp of man’s body and reduce it to harmony.

It is rare for such an exquisite voice to be accompanied by both extraordinary technical facility and keen musical intelligence, but this is the case with Diana Damrau. Whether she burnishes her silver tones or caresses the sweetest of high notes, Damrau impresses her audience with the wide range of vocal colours at her disposal. Returning to the Grand Théâtre with her longtime musical partner, harpist Xavier de Maistre, Diana Damrau will be giving a recital in which the transcriptions for the harp focus on the musical essentials: from the brilliance of Rossini to the pure emotion of Schubert, via the dreamy, impressionistic floating of Fauré and Debussy.
