    “Done with vigor, sensitivity and vocal stamina. With conductor Jonathan Khuner leading a vivid rendition, and soprano Juyeon Song and tenor Roy Cornelius Smith blazing forth in the title roles, this was an entirely unexpected delight. There was no denying the integrity and power of this Tristan.” – Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

    “A wonderful event. The Claude Heater Foundation has made a promising, daring, welcome entrance.” – Janos Gereben, San Francisco Classical Voice

    Best of the year 2018 in Classical Music “One of the great musical surprises of the year was a concert performance of Wagner’s masterpiece of forbidden love, given Aug. 26 in Herbst Theatre. This is a piece that can challenge even established opera companies, and to hear it done this well by representatives of the Claude Heater Foundation – with soprano Juyeon Song and tenor Roy Cornelius Smith in the title roles led by conductor Jonathan Khuner – defied reasonable expectations.” – Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle
