Asmik Online

Asmik Grigorian — what a wonderful singer and actress she is! No wonder she has been named Young Female Singer of 2016 at the International Opera Awards. At the moment two of the Lithuanian soprano’s exciting performances are available online.

Tatiana

At this concert performance of Wozzeck from the 2016 Holland Festival, Grigorian’s affecting and beautifully sung Marie was a triumph. This thrilling performance stars Florian Boesch in the title role.

Over on The Opera Platform, Grigorian is a hypersensitive, brittle Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, although there is nothing brittle about her secure, silvery singing. Her letter scene is almost too painful to watch, as is her humiliation by Onegin. Barry Kosky’s story-telling is straightforward and the production looks gorgeous. Its filmic character makes it especially suitable for online viewing.

Enjoy!
