    Andris Nelsons conducts Wagner and Respighi

    This wide-ranging one-night-only event celebrates the start of BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons' tenure with the orchestra, and features two close colleagues of the conductor as soloists-his wife, the acclaimed Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais, and the outstanding German tenor Jonas Kaufmann. Each sings selections from the Wagnerian and Italian verismo repertoires, after which they join forces for a powerful duet from Puccini's Manon Lescaut. The concert opens with Wagner's Tannhauser Overture - the work that first inspired a five-year-old Nelsons to a life in music - and closes with Respighi's spectacular orchestral showcase, Pines of Rome.
