Voice Critic Michael Feingold and Grammy Greatness
He didn't write the music or show up at the ceremony nine-months pregnant, but we're happy to note that our theater critic Michael Feingold has had a hand in a recording that won not one but two Grammys: Best Classical Album and Best Opera Recording.
The EuroArts recording of the Los Angeles Opera's The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny--starring Patti LuPone and Audra McDonald--garnered the two awards last night. The multi-lingual Feingold provided the English-language translation of the Kurt Weill-Bertolt Brecht piece.
Next up, Feingold is rumored to be working with Lil Wayne on the rapper's long-expected German song cycle.
