Diamanda Galás is an exceptional talent with an extraordinary, explosive technique and a quintessentially theatrical performance style. With her inimitable three and a half octave operatic voice laced with angels and demons, her theatrical power transcends singing as we know it.
Her work has evolved around an impassioned, existential exploration of the poet in exile over the generations. Accompanying herself on a concert grand piano, Galás brings an astonishing array of moods and associations to her performances.
