James Levine conducts Wagner and Strauss at the Waldbühne

For the 1999 Waldbühne concert, conductor James Levine and heldentenor Ben Heppner chose not light fare but a programme of late Romantic masterpieces by Wagner and Richard Strauss. In addition to Strauss’s Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel, the audience was regaled with excerpts from well-known music dramas by both composers, including Der Rosenkavalier, Lohengrin, Tristan und Isolde and Die Meistersinger.
