A hedonistic minstrel is torn between lust and spirituality in Wagner’s mid-period opera Tannhäuser. As the curtains lift, the titular singer is happily imprisoned by the goddess Venus, caught up in a bacchanalian ballet. But after a year of having his every physical appetite sated, his intellect grows bored and his soul restless. Only by evoking the name of the Virgin Mary is he able to escape his sensual captor. However, he finds that shrugging off his indulgent lifestyle isn’t so easy once he returns to the mortal world, a dilemma that sparks an internal war between his body and mind.

The opera cast includes talents like tenor Nicholas Simpson, a vocalist noted for his technical and expressive singing capabilities. In 2012, the Opera News praised him for his “full-bodied, brightly projected” voice.
