by BWW News Desk - Jun 5, 2015

Starting Sunday, Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Susan Graham - praised as 'singing beautifully' by Huffington Post for her recent star turn in the Metropolitan Opera's Merry Widow - returns to San Francisco Opera to reprise her signature role of Dido in Berlioz's epic Les Troyens (June 7-July 1). The Associated Press has declared Graham's 'the ideal voice for Berlioz - a mezzo with a dark richness that blossoms into lush soprano-like tones.' The singer will be starring in San Francisco Opera's premiere presentation of the David McVicar production, hailed at its Covent Garden debut as 'a major event' by The Guardian. Graham will perform alongside Bryan Hymel as Aeneas, with Donald Runnicles conducting. Two seasons ago, when the Met broadcast a starry revival of Les Troyens to cinema audiences worldwide in the company's hit Live in HD series, Graham was widely acknowledged as its standout star. The New York Times said: 'The big news is mezzo-soprano Susan Graham ... whose portrayal is sumptuous, regal and impassioned.' (more...)

by Richard Sasanow - May 20, 2015

Now, the singing and acting were so good that one could forget the conceit's shortcomings. (more...)
