"Recognized as the finest dramatic tenor before the public today, Canada's Ben Heppner takes a break between operas in Germany and France for an Atlantic Canadian solo recital tour in February. Heppner brings his demanding repertoire, which ranges from Wagner, Verdi and Berlioz, to Saint John's Imperial Theatre on Feb. 20 and Fredericton's Playhouse on Feb. 22. Heppner will perform several folk songs arranged by Benjamin Britten including 'The Salley Gardens,' 'The Plough Boy' and 'The Foggy Foggy Dew'; songs of Northern European composers including Tchaikovsky, Sibelius and Grieg; opera arias by Wagner, Giordano and Puccini (including 'Nessun dorma'); as well as several parlour songs."
