Wagner returns to the LA Opera stage for the first time in seven years
After escaping Venusʼ erotic entrapment, Tannhäuser returns to earth to pursue the virtuous love of another. But in a momentary lapse of judgment, he shocks the town with a passionate affirmation of carnal delights... which definitely doesnʼt help him woo the innocent young woman heʼs smitten with.
The fast-rising and incredible heldentenor — German for “heroic tenor” (i.e., knock-your-socks-off) — Issachah Savage stars as Tannhäuser, bringing his rare, beautiful voice to one of the most challenging roles in opera.
Tickets currently available when you buy as part of a 2020/21 package.
“Conlon has fully assumed the mantle of the most accomplished music director currently on the podium of an American opera house.”
