Nadine Sierra Q&A from Vienna's 'Yellow Lounge'

Bookmark and Share

Nadine Sierra, 2018 winner of the Metropolitan Opera's prestigious Beverly Sills Artist Award, has made her first album for Deutsche Grammophon and Decca Gold, having signed an exclusive contract with the labels last year. Recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Robert Spano, There's a Place for Us marks the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth and presents the soprano's stunning vocal abilities in an eclectic choice of American classical music. In addition to works by Bernstein, the repertoire ranges from Stephen Foster and Douglas Moore to Stravinsky and Villa-Lobos, and on again to Ricky Ian Gordon, Osvaldo Golijov and Christopher Theofanidis, with texts in Spanish and Portuguese as well as English. After singing the role of Norina (Don Pasquale) at the Paris Opéra in June and July, Sierra performed music from the album at last summer's major US festivals, including an appearance at Tanglewood's star-studded Bernstein Centennial Celebration.
