During the height of his career, one of his signature parts was Tristan, from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, the five-hour opera that demands super-human stamina and formidable vocal prowess. Heppner performed it in opera houses around the world, garnering praise for the sensitivity of his performance, as well as the dramatic power of his voice.
….a stroke of genius!
This assertive, fearlessly virtuosic Chopin style was filled with thoughtful exploration and a kind of questioning illumination.
