Dallas Opera Announces That Luca Grassi To (Finally) Make U.S. Debut

Luca Grassi
We've been singing the praises of Luca Grassi since the inception of this site in 2007. It's amazing to us that no American opera house has engaged this compelling singer and actor until now. The Dallas Opera in announcing their 2011-2012 is trumpeting the debut of the hunky Italian as their Lord Ashton in the company's revival of Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor."

Lucia di Lammermoor will open at the beautiful Winspear Opera house on October 21st and run through November 6th. The Dallas Opera will also perform Tristan und Isolde, The Magic Flute and La Traviata. For additional cast and performance information, please visit their website

Grassi, who originally trained to be an engineer, can next be seen in Leipzig's "La Traviata"

By the way, we loved that the Dallas Opera gave a shout out to Barihunks in their press release announcing their new season!
