Christine Goerke is an incredible artistJune 3, 2015By Francisco J. (Pennsauken, NJ)See All My Reviews"What could be better than a DVD of the music of Richard Strauss - a DVD with Christine Goerke, Christian Theielmann, et.al. Ms. Goerke has power and strength that makes your hair stand on end. But she never forgets that it's Strauss and his music that matters most. I so look forward to hearing more of her Wagner as well as her Turandot this coming season at the MET. Listening to her voice, one is so totally amazed and has to wonder - where does all that sound and power come from. A very exciting performance."Report Abuse
