John Mac Master to sing Tristan at the Metropolitan Opera

Canadian tenor John Mac Master will replace an indisposed Ben Heppner in the opening night performance of Tristan und Isolde at New York's Metropolitan Opera this Monday evening March 10 at 7:00 PM.

The production is by Dieter Dorn, and will be conducted my Metropolitan Opera Music Director James Levine. The cast includes Deborah Voigt as Isolde, Michelle de Young as Brangaene, and Matti Sallonen as King Marke.

The performance will also be broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio, and is available on-line from Sirius as well.

Mac Master made his Metropolitan Opera debut as Canio in I Pagliacci in 2005; he first sang the role of Tristan last season for Welsh National Opera. This season he was heard as Otello for Opera de Quebec, Canio for Vancouver Opera, in a concert of excerpts of Wagner's Gˆtterdˆ§mmerung with Leipzig's Gewandhaus Orchestra, and with the Barcelona Symphony for Schoenberg's Gurrelieder.
