Nadine Sierra and Deutsche Grammophon have announced the soprano’s first solo album entitled “There’s a Place for Us.”
The new album, scheduled for August 24, 2018, marks the soprano’s first solo effort and also marks her first in a long-term contract with DG and Decca Gold. The album is set to include works by Bernstein, Villa-Lobos, Golijov, Stravinsky, Gordon, and Foster and is set to pay tribute to the diverse backgrounds and creative energy of America’s classical composers. It is also set to present a timely reminder of unity and equality, of integration and optimism, at a time when anti-immigrant rhetoric is increasing, and fault-lines are widening between divided communities in the US and beyond.
Nadine Sierra will perform music from the album at this summer’s major US festivals, including an appearance at Tanglewood’s star-studded Bernstein Centennial Celebration. She also returns to the Berlin State Opera for a revival of Verdi’s “Falstaff” and the Metropolitan Opera for a revival of Verdi’s “Rigoletto.”
