Christine Schaefer, My Art of Singing A portrait by Felix Schmidt

About

Christine Schäfer reveals how she has come to position herself in the top ranks of today's sopranos while still maintaining her artistic freedom.

With razor-sharp wit and intelligence, she describes how she keeps herself grounded in a world that craves celebrities. Among the friends and colleagues who provide insights into her artistry as well as her refreshing normality are conductors Christian Thielemann and Sylvain Cambreling, stage director Christoph Marthaler, music journalist Jürgen Kesting, singer Jose van Dam and others. Christine Schäfer is the anti-diva of the vocal world, a no-nonsense, down-to-earth singer who transforms her opera roles and lieder recitals into grippingly realistic scenes of universal human drama.
