-------------------------------

Gregory Warren, a graduate of the Domingo Caffritz Program at the Washington Opera, sang the Young Sailor with smooth, easily produced vocalism. Baritone, Matthew Moore was a colorful Steersman and Brian Mulligan was an energetic Melot. As has been true of previous performances, Grant Gershon's chorus sang with precision and blended beauty.

Tristan und Isolde is a magnificent work that demands superhuman singers. Although this performance had a few imperfections, it was most certainly a welcome addition to this season's repertoire.
