Robert Trevino has been invited by Andris Poga as a guest artist. He comes from the USA and is an expressive conductor of the new generation with a successful career in Europe and Russia. Fittingly, Elsa, Lohengrin and Ortrud are coming from Germany. The tenor Corby Welch has performed the role of Eric at the Latvian National Opera, whereas both ladies are on their first visit to Latvia. Hofmann is a rising star, highly esteemed in Germany and adored in France. Tanja Ariane Baumgartner is a temperamental performer of dramatic roles in the best opera houses in Europe and the Salzburg Festival. Thus, the swan will graciously emerge from the Cēsis Castle pond and present us a marvellous opera evening with truly outstanding stars.
