Heppner, Stemme in Houston's "Tristan"

Join us at noon for the opera that changed music: Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. As Tristan is no less than Ben Heppner, "open-hearted, in robust and thrilling voice… His Tristan is less a hero and more a tortured, troubled soul, filled with longing, pride, and confusion." As Isolde is Swedish soprano Nina Stemme, who "fascinates by her ability to combine vocal beauty with dramatic force."
