FROM THE PRESS

The Met’s Walküre has a cast worth bragging about New York Times
Christine Goerke is a spectacular Wagnerian … With her 50-caliber soprano, Goerke makes a fearsome warrior. New York Magazine
Westbroek is a trenchant Sieglinde … Skelton is a splendid Siegmund in every respect. Barton’s Fricka is richly sung … Günther Groissböck contributes a delectably malevolent Hunding. Financial Times
The stuff of high tragedy … In Greer Grimsley’s big, dark bass-baritone…every phrase and every dramatic gesture proceeds organically from his vast experience in this role. Observer
A Brünnhilde who marries vocal vitality and emotional presence in each radiant note. She takes on the physically grueling task with ninja-like focus and suppleness … Stuart Skelton and Eva-Maria Westbroek were bright stars … Jamie Barton’s portrayal of Fricka, Wotan’s wife, was also brilliantly purposeful and vocally commanding … Gunther Groissböck sang the role with crisp intention and lethal bite. New York Times
