BWW Review: A Passionate Vittorio Grigolo in the Off-Kilter World of Massenet's WERTHER at the MetBWW Review: A Passionate Vittorio Grigolo in the Off-Kilter World of Massenet's WERTHER at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Feb 23, 2017

Tenor Vittorio Grigolo always seems most at home on stage when he's living close to the edge--portraying a character who's losing control (or about to) of his emotions. It was true earlier this season as Romeo, in Gounod's ROMEO ET JULIETTE at the Met opposite Diana Damrau and, in 2015, as Chevalier Des Grieux in Massenet's MANON, also with Damrau. (Might as well add Offenbach's Hoffmann to the mix.) Well, Massenet's back at the Met with WERTHER, also starring the gorgeous, sultry-voiced mezzo Isabel Leonard and all should be well with the world, with Grigolo as the poet who's losing his head (and mind) over a woman who can't (or won't) reciprocate. And yet… (more...)

BWW Review: Grigolo's No Dime-Store ROMEO Opposite Damrau in Gounod's Opera at the MetBWW Review: Grigolo's No Dime-Store ROMEO Opposite Damrau in Gounod's Opera at the Met

Luckily, that wasn't the case with Diana Damrau and Vittorio Grigolo in the Met's new Bartlett Sher production, where they lit some fires at Tuesday's performance. (more...)
