Divine Diva – Diana Damrau

After The Hills there were the Kardashians, after the Kardashians? Diana Damrau. Our favourite German Coloratura officially has her own reality show. Well, actually more like a reality episode. The one hour documentary followed Damrau over nine months and gives the viewer a rare glimpse into the life of an artist of her calibre. Oh, did I mention it’s in French. C’est la vie.  ARTE TV will broadcast Divine Diva on Feb 21, but because everyone hates to wait, art lIfe and stilettos has the whole thing for you to watch after the jump, but first, here is what ARTE TV had to say about Divine Diva:

From Geneva to New York during his recitals and recording sessions, a portrait of the singer Diana Damrau, at the height of glory.

At the age of 12, when she saw La Traviata filmed by Franco Zeffirelli, that little Diana decides to become a singer. Maybe then she dreamed of one day singing with Placido Domingo in front of millions of viewers? A dream came true in 2006 during the opening ceremony of World Cup football: Diana Damrau and his idol interpreted together the “Brindisi” from Verdi’s opera … Onstage and backstage, but also in his family life in Geneva, the director followed for nine months that the German newspapers call “the best soprano of the moment,” his immense vocal qualities are projected onto the big stage in the world .
