About the album

This is a program of some of the greatest French Opera Arias.  These are all among the most beautiful opera arias for soprano in the entire operatic canon.

The Belgian soprano Iris Hendrickx is the discovery of the year. I am a huge opera fan and I hadn't heard from her yet. But Iris' debut CD French Opera Arias is for me a revelation of a new lyric voice and also some new repertoire. Iris' full soprano voice is revealing a wide spectrum of emotions, colors and opinions of her characters in this recording. Her youthful vulnerability is deeply moving, especially in her roles as Marguerite and Lia. Her voice is warm and full of melancholy in the lower register and than so shimmering and focussed in the higher parts. Her heartbreaking interpretation of the suffering Catherine in Henri VIII (Saint-Saens) is one of the finest operatic performances I've heard on a "live" recording.
