Fabio Luisi

Fabio Luisi took home his first Grammy Award on Sunday, February 10, 2013 for his recording of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen. The five-disc box set - which was recorded live over the course of two seasons at the Metropolitan Opera, where Luisi holds the post of Principal Conductor - was awarded the 2012 Grammy for Best Opera Recording. Released on Blu-ray and DVD by Deutsche Grammophon, it features Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde and Bryn Terfel as Wotan under the "exciting, insightful, and assured" leadership (New York Times) of Luisi in Siegfried and Götterdämmerung. Luisi returns to the Ring in 2013, the same year that marks the 200th anniversary of Wagner's birth, for three more cycles of Robert Lepage's landmark production, running from April 6 to May 11. More information about these upcoming performances can be found here, and the Grammy-winning recording can be purchased at the Met Opera Shop or on Amazon.
