Metropolitan Opera Review 2015-16: 'Elektra's' Awkward Opening to Evening Overshadowed By Nina Stemme's Unforgettable Portrayal of Title Role

There are still many other performances of "Tosca" to come at the Met with a wide array of sopranos, tenors and baritones. Unfortunately there will be no more Gheorghiu on the Met stage for the balance of the 2015-16 season.
