a living legend. perhaps having some physical challenges (holding on to the piano and walking with a slight limp). Would have REALLY liked her to say a few words - even good evening would have been nice, or a few words about the music, etc. Her accompianist was awesome. The crowd was very supportive and enthusiastic. Liked the venue, Royce Hall, tho staging was totally stark. But because she held on to the piano for most of the performance, she was farther back on the stage; I would have liked her closer to the audience. Overall almost a 4 but these made it a 3.

- “The immensity of her voice struck like a thunderbolt... it was like an eruption of primal power." --<em>Jerusalem Post</em>
One of those once-in-a-generation singers who has never followed in the footsteps of others, soprano Jessye Norman continues to build upon her own rich legacy as she brings joy, passion and her opulent sound to innovative recital performances and operatic portrayals around the world.
A 2006 recipient of the Grammy Awards’ Lifetime Achievement Award, Norman returns to Royce Hall after a breathtaking sold-out performance in 2005, performing an uplifting program celebrating love and the four seasons, including works by Brahms, Mahler, Schoenberg, Messiaen, Gershwin, Kurt Weill, Joseph Kosma, Richard Danielpour and more.
