Canadian Singers - Adrienne Pieczonka

Here is a recording of Adrienne Pieczonka singing the aria Es gibt ein Reich from Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos. Listen to the creamy line and her ease in accessing her middle and lower registers.

In full despair from being left by her love Theseus, Ariadne describes the land of death to which she will go to escape her pains. She welcomes death, thinking that in the land of death she will find everything that she has been denied in life.

You can hear Adrienne in the Canadian Opera Company's production of Beethoven's Fidelio until February 24, 2009.
