“Taking on the role of the mother from hell is American mezzo-soprano Jill Grove, doing splendidly by music she actually sings rather than screams in the time-dishonored Klytemnestra tradition… Grove attacks her music and stage business with cackling gusto.”

Elektra, Lyric Opera of Chicago

Chicago Tribune

Renowned for her distinctive dramatic voice and passionate artistry, American mezzo soprano Jill Grove has won critical raves throughout America and Europe for her distinguished portrayals of the heroines of German and Italian opera. She is equally at home with the world’s leading orchestras and in recital.
