It's funny how fate turns out. Natalie Dessay wanted to be ballet dancer and an actress. While taking acting classes, she discovered her flare for singing and shifted her focus there. It turned out for the best and brought her a successful career spread over three decades. She studied voice at Conservatoire de Bordeaux. Her early experiences saw her as a part of a choir in Toulouse. She won in first place in a competition held by France Telecom and also at the Vienne State Opera. After that she studied for a year in a Paris opera, Ecole d'Art Lyrique.
The smell of talents soon spread all over and theatres started approaching her. Subsequently, she sang in Der Schauspieldirektor, at the Opera Bastille, Opera National de Lyon and in Die Fledermaus. Dessay's road to stardom began with her performance at the Opera Bastille in 1992. She sang in The Tales of Hoffman as "Olympia". It was a Roman Polenski production and was not received very well in Paris but Viennese audiences loved Dessay as Olympia. She came back in this role ten years after this performance. She worked in a Mozart production at the Vienne State Opera and was later asked to join a production of Hoffman in place of one of the three prominent female roles.
Natalie made her US debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. It was a role in Strauss's Arabella. She came back with new roles twice after this one. She gave her U.S. recital, first ever, in 2003 in Santa Fe. It was her attraction to Santa Fe and New Mexico that she was featured by the Santa Fe Opera in a new production of an opera which was cancelled in Europe because of her vocal issues. Moreover, she returned to the city to perform in The Magic Flute and La Traviata. Dessay's second favorite place in the U.S. was New York where she returned several times to perform at the Metropolitan Opera.
Dessay's career was not without some rise and fall. While in Vienna, around 2001 and 2002, she started having some vocal problems which got so obvious that she had to be replaced in many performances and some others she cancelled herself. She stopped performing on the stage for a while go undergo a vocal surgery. She returned to stage after a while, performing in Paris but her performances were cancelled again for further surgery. She recovered completely till mid-2005 and came back on stage.

She has also released some DVDs of her live performances including Strauss: Arabella, Thomas: Hamlet, Massenet: Manon and Verdi: La Traviata. She has won a number of awards and honors for her work in the field like Laurence Olivier Award, Opera News Award, Kammersangerin, Chevalier of the Legion of Honour and Prix Grand Siecle Laurent-Perrier. She has announced to take a sabbatical in the year 2015 in an interview. Most recently, a documentary chronicling the production of Verdi's La Traviata and Dessay's role has been released.
