  • 01.04.2017 - Eine Begegnung mit Rolando Villazón

  • "Düsseldorf. Plötzlich kommt er einem entgegen, schlendert in Richtung Heinrich-Heine-Allee, den Blick ein wenig verträumt in den Himmel gerichtet, aber es ist ja auch noch früh am Vormittag. Opern-Star Rolando Villazón ist in Düsseldorf, und wenn man Glück hat, begegnet er einem in diesen Tagen einmal in der Innenstadt.

  • 31.03.2017 - Interview:Opera Superstar Anna Netrebko on Her Creative Process

  • "Anna Netrebko has been referred to—by Metropolitan Opera head Peter Gelb, no less—as the "complete artistic package." The Russian soprano is famous not only for her voice but for a sensuality that has drawn comparisons to Maria Callas.

  • 31.03.2017 - “Lindsey proved a flesh-and-blood guardian angel whose eloquence of expression elevated all around her” – Los Angeles Times

  • Like Grigolo, Lindsey made her L.A. Opera debut in 2011. In her case, though, in Rossini's "The Turk in Italy," the voice was attractive, the persona a little bland. Two years later in another Rossini opera, "Cinderella," there were signs of blossoming. Her Muse/Nicklausse was full bloom.
