Barbara Hannigan Goes All The Way

Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan was spectacular last year as the crazed Gepopo in the New York Philharmonic’s version of Ligeti’s “Le Grand Macabre.” (The production’s costumes, in the video above, are very Gaga.) Right now, she’s been singing “Pli selon Pli” (Fold by Fold), Pierre Boulez‘s setting for soprano and huge orchestra of poems by Mallarm√©. Check out her website.
