In classical music the year, St. Louis champions new opera
“Benjamin Britten, who turned 100, got the lion’s share of the attention, particularly in St. Louis. Richard Wagner, at 200, did less well; on the other hand, he didn’t write a lot of church music or chamber works. Wagner also got a dandy nod from Union Avenue Opera in August, with the second installment of Jonathan Dove’s reduced ‘Ring’: ‘Die Walküre,’ with a fine cast headed by Alexandra LoBianco’s Brünnhilde.”

A Classical Version of Rhythm--and Booms
“Alexandra LoBianco immediately showed she’s got the Wagnerian chops for her upcoming Brunnhilde with an aria from Tannhauser. Like her colleagues, she showed a polished gift for broad humor in ‘I’m Easily Assimilated.’”
Greg Hettmansberger, Madison Magazine
