Le Grand Macabre most certainly isn't "just" an opera, but it is one that fully exploits the full range of dramatic, musical and singing opportunities for expression that the medium is capable of.

The singing in particular is extremely demanding, full of flourishes and vocal gymnastics in near-impossible tessitura.Read more ›
