BWW Reviews: LADY MACBETH OF MTSENSK is 'Opera Noir' and Utterly Wonderful at the MetBWW Reviews: LADY MACBETH OF MTSENSK is 'Opera Noir' and Utterly Wonderful at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Nov 18, 2014

And she has to do it all while effortlessly singing Shostakovich's demanding score. What a dame! (more...)
