“This is a dream come true. It’s the new aspect of my career – maybe even my new face as a singer. I’m saying goodbye to most of the lighter repertoire I’ve done for 20 years. When I started singing, it was indeed my dream to do this sort of repertoire, but I really did think of it as a dream and I never thought I would actually sing such an incredibly beautiful role as Elisabetta on stage. When I think of the arias on this album, I felt in the past that I would never sing them. I was taught that I’m a coloratura soprano, and that doing characters such as the Queen of the Night ruled others out. But I’ve been in love with these arias since I first heard opera, and it’s very touching for me that I’m now allowed to sing this music.” -- Aleksandra KurzakTRACKLIST1 Adriana Lecouvreur, Act I Scene 3: Ecco, respiro appena...
