Wagner at the Empress: The Show Goes On!
In January, we ran an article about the Empress Theatre
reopening and hosting an evening of music by the composer Richard Wagner
. Unfortunately, Covid restrictions prevented that show from taking place. Now, however, it has been rescheduled and the show will go on, Saturday, July 9th
The program features Canadian-American soprano, Othalie Graham
, whose star has been quickly rising in the world of opera. Known for her commitment to Wagnerian repertoire, she is consistently recognized not only for her powerful voice, but also her musicality and interpretive imagination. The Vallejo Festival Orchestra
will accompany Ms. Graham.
The conductor for this program is the Grammy award-winning Thomas Conlin
, whose symphonic and operatic leading work has spanned five continents and accumulated much praise.
The concert will include excerpts from Tannhaeuser, Tristan und Isolde, Die Walkuere, Lohengrin, The Flying Dutchman and Die Meistersinger von Nuremberg. Further details about the concert, Othalie Graham, and Thomas Conlin can be found in our January 2022 issue, or at empresstheatre.org
