A battle between sex and love – are they the same? or mutually exclusive? – runs through the heart of Wagner’s Tannhäuser, making it one of his most direct and devastating works. After an unbroken string of Wagnerian triumphs (‘Remarkable… superb’ The Telegraph), Saffron Opera Group presents the opera - in the ballet-rich Paris version - with a cast of exciting young singers and established stars.
SOG favourite Elaine McKrill sings the temptress Venus, award-winning young soprano Samantha Crawford is the pure-hearted Elisabeth, and star tenor Neal Cooper (Tannhäuser) is the knight torn between them. With the superb Andrew Greenan as Landgraf, and acclaimed Wagner expert Michael Thorne conducting, it’s set to be another coup for SOG.
This event is not recommended for children under 7 years old.
This concert performance will be sung in German with English surtitles.
This performance will have two 30min intervals and is due to finish at approximately 7pm.
