Heidi Melton sings

Outstanding young dramatic soprano Heidi Melton, Adler Fellow at San Francisco Opera, performs Olivier Messiaen’s hour-long epic song cycle on the theme of Tristan and Isolda. Peruvian legends, mysticism and birdsong illuminate this extraordinary rarely-performed masterpiece, which abounds in rich lyricism, compelling drama and the utmost virtuosity from both performers. A major centenary tribute to the one of the musical giants of the twentieth century.
