French soprano Natalie Dessay makes her first appearance at Davies Symphony Hall, taking the stage to perform French songs and German Lieder. The six-time Victoires de la Musique and 2008 Laurence Olivier Award winner is admired as an interpreter of bel canto and lyric heroines. The New York Times raves, “every vocal phrase [Dessay sings] is impelled by the emotion and dramatic intention of the moment.”
