Diana Damrau at the WQXR studios Diana Damrau at the WQXR studios (Ruth Reader/Operavore)

This Saturday at 12:30 pm on WQXR, guest host Deborah Voigt has a tête-à-tête with soprano Diana Damrau about vocal color, career choices and singing "My Fair Lady" in German.

Consider this an afternoon with the girls. These sopranos share insights on the music of Richard Strauss, and Damrau remembers her Met debut when the overwhelming audience applause made her realize, “They like me!” Tune in for a fun half-hour of music and talk.
