Natalie Dessay, a consummate singing actress / OperaWire: Artist Profile
Soprano Natalie Dessay was likely one of the greatest opera actors that the world has ever known. Born on April 19, 1965, she had always intended to be an actress and ballet dancer, but then turned her attention to singing and studied at the Université de Bordeaux. Thereafter, she won the International Mozart Competition in Vienna and was subsequently engaged by a number of opera companies through...
Top performers tell BBC Music Magazine which of Debussy's works they most love
Nine of the most inspirational Debussy works are presented here as top performers tell us which of the French composer's works they most love. Soprano Natalie Dessay put it this way; I think it must be the chemistry between the words and the music which makes Pélleas et Mélisande such a wonderful opera – and unique; its music seems to come from another planet. I think this is ...

Natalie Dessay - Barbican review: 'sublime' / The Telegraph
La Belle France has produced some musical wonders in the past thirty years or so, but top-rank sopranos are not among them. Some would say Natalie Dessay is the only one. She's certainly had a glittery career in the world's top opera houses, and her seraphic high notes and comic talent wowed London when she played Marie in Donizetti's La Fille du Régiment some years back. Natalie D...
Natalie Dessay dazzles in L.A. Philharmonic Baroque program / Orance County Register
Natalie Dessay, who made her debut Friday night with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is something else. The French soprano is classical music's answer to Edith Piaf, or perhaps Ella Fitzgerald. She doesn't just sing a song, she lives it, with style. Her vehicle Friday was one of her most celebrated, Cleopatra in excerpts from Handel's "Giulio Cesare." She put across three arias, a duet and accompanied ...

Natalie Dessay | Michel Legrand: 'Entre elle et lui' / Audiophile Audition review
We receive so many female vocalist discs to review that we just can't keep up with all of them, but this one caught my ear immediately and forced me to review it. It is their first together and Legrand says in his notes that Dessay – who had had quite a career as a soprano in classical opera and songs – gives his songs a whole new life and he loves hearing her reinvent them. Dessay was bo...
