Christine Goerke | Soprano


 "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
