In her debut album on Warner Classics "Enchantée", 

Marie Oppert embraces both the classics of Broadway repertoire and treasured songs of French origin, in order to represent her own musical upbringing and passion. 

She is joined by the Orchestre National de Lille and conductor Nicholas Skilbeck in the recording, and in two separate tracks she reunites with Natalie Dessay and Melissa Errico, whom she affectionately calls “my two Franco-American ‘fairy godmothers’.
