About

Richard Strauss’s opera at the Salzburg Festival, staged by Romeo Castellucci at the Felsenreitschule, was nothing short of a sensation! Debuting in the title role, Asmik Grigorian propelled herself to international stardom with her mesmerizing singing and acting abilities. The exceptional soprano recently won the International Opera Award as best singer. To witness Maestro Franz Welser-Möst performing together with the Wiener Philharmoniker and an outstanding cast ‘makes you think you are hearing the piece in its most perfect incarnation yet’ (Financial Times).
