Les Troyens: San Francisco Opera

Runnicles presided over a splendidly paced orchestral reading, enforcing a sense of flow, lending the singers essential support, and delivering Berlioz’s big dramatic moments with commanding sweep and weight. From the doom of Troy to the idyllic music of the Royal Hunt and Storm, Runnicles, whose greatest triumphs with this company have been in Ring cycles, revealed the musical line from Berlioz to Wagner with characteristic command and a fervent sense of discovery. spacer
