If you thought Ben Heppner was just about opera – you haven’t been keeping up.

Heppner - arms folded

Ben Heppner is one of our great tenors

Heppner is one of our great tenors, but he no longer sings opera. The show he is doing at the Lowville Festival features a variety of genres, including gospel and musical theatre. The Heppner story is: We thought you had retired, Ben? No, he hasn’t retired at all. Just retired from opera.

There is quite a taste for opera in Hamilton/Burlington, as witness the advent of two local opera companies, Boris Brott’s new company, which operates in the summer, and SOLO, Southern Lyric Opera Company, which does most of its presentations here in Burlington throughout the regular season.

Heppner is on stage at St. Georges Hall – starts at 7:30 pm.
