Filmed by Bruno Monsaingeon, impassioned and head-spinning lessons given by the legendary soprano Julia Varady.
Julia Varady is a legend. She is all the more so since she has never exposed herself to the media and her recording career has never matched the measure of her talent. Born in Romania in 1941, she was trained at the hard school of the troupes of the Bucharest and Budapest operas and became the bright star that was to inflame the international lyrical scene when she moved to West Germany in 1970. She married the baritone Dietrich Fischer Dieskau and pursued an exceptional career thanks to a voice of amazing amplitude, intensity and dramatic temperament.
