Asmik Grigorian can do no wrong

There was a 12-minute ovation at La Scala for Korngold’s Die tote Stadt, much of it directed at the Armenian-Lithuanian comet in the soprano skies.

Alan Gilbert conducted.

  • The lead tenor role of Paul is a notoriously heavy sing, too – I hope they saved a clap or two for him as well? 😉

  • She is fabulous, but we are burying the lede. Die tote Stadt was just put on for the first time ever at La Scala! The Korngold revival is real and it is here to stay. A forgotten curiosity, he is assuming what I believe is his rightful place among the great composers of the 20th century
