A Note About COVID-19
As you are aware, many arts organizations around the world are rightfully concerned about the health and well-being of the people in their communities as we face the unprecedented challenges of the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak. In many countries, state and federally mandated closures, as well as restrictions on large gatherings and travel, mean that many productions and concerts are being cancelled for the foreseeable future – changes with huge ramifications for our beloved musical artists and arts organizations.

"So few singers live up to their hype – this one’s missing a trill, that one’s voice is smaller in person, the third tires easily – but not Christine Goerke, now arguably the finest Wagnerian soprano in the world."
- Robert Levine
"Ms. Goerke displays a big, blazing soprano that not only has the gale-force power and sheen to slice through Strauss' huge orchestra, but also seamless legato and an entire paintbox of colors."
-The Wall Street Journal
"The night belonged to the American soprano Christine Goerke, who simply owns the title role...she brought effortless power, gleaming sound and dramatic intensity to this unforgettable Elektra, earning an ovation so ecstatic she was overcome with teary emotion.
- The New York Times
" A voice like hers comes once in a generation..."
- Houston Examiner
"Christine Goerke is the Brünnhilde of dreams, progessing from girlish enthusiasm to defiance to tragic acceptance, her soprano thrilling from top to bottom."
- Dallas Morning News
