About

A portrait of Natalie Dessay, a peerless soprano and actress.

After dreaming of being a star dancer, Natalie Dessay discovered that she had a talent for singing, and joined Bordeaux Conservatory, leaving with first prize at the age of 20! In 1989, after being revealed by the Concours des Voix nouvelles singing competition, she joined Paris Opera School. Everything happened very fast, and in 1992, she performed one of her favourite roles: Olympia in the Tales of Hoffmann by Jacques Offenbach, directed by Roman Polanski. She joined the Vienna Staatsoper company and then sang Olympia again at Lyon Opera, directed by Louis Erlo.
