A Whale of a work: Ben Heppner on Moby Dick Canadian tenor Ben Heppner (BH) plays the role of Captain Ahab in Dallas Opera’s upcoming production of Moby Dick. WRR’s Kurt Rongey (KR) had a chance to talk with Heppner recently offering us our first view of this massive production. Below are a few highlights from Moby Dick: Maiden Voyage of a New Opera Wednesday, April 28 at 8 p.m. The program explores the creation and staging of this new production. WRR will also present a thirty-minute pre-show broadcast event on the opening night of Moby Dick April 30 at 7 p.m. KR: Have you gotten a sense yet of what kind of impression people are going to get of your character, Captain Ahab on the stage? BH: [Ahab is] a very powerful individual who stands out against the forces of nature, who one might actually think is a force of nature himself. When you do the kind of roles that I do, you actually have to have a lot of courage to not

be liked. Really only in the second act, you’ll see a little more humanity from him. He talks about his boy, and having left his wife widowed while Ben Heppner her husband is still alive. But he’s a fairly focused character, particularly in act one. He’s focused on this revenge with the whale. KR: There is a certain physical feature ascribed to Ahab in the book… BH: A bald pate [laughs]? No. I go on Tuesday to New York and have a fitting for the peg leg. So I guess the amputation will follow shortly [laughs]. KR: On an unrelated note, you sang for something like 60,000 people at the Vancouver Olympics… BH: One doesn’t think about the people in the stadium. One always thinks about the

millions of people who were watching worldwide. I had a great, great time. And what a moment for us Canucks to host the games! There was an atmosphere in the city the likes of which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before. KR: You play the iconic sea captain in the Moby Dick opera. But I understand your favorite means of transportation is a motorcycle. BH: Actually, I’m trying to find a way to justify bringing the motorcycle down to Dallas. I don’t have time to ride it down, because it’s a thousand miles between one and the other. But I’m thinking maybe of shipping it down. And then, I think I have a couple of days when I can actually ride back. KR: So people in Dallas might watch out. If you see a bike zooming past, it might be the great Canadian heldentenor Ben Heppner. BH: [laughs] That’s right, yeah, please be nice to me. Moby Dick: Maiden Voyage of a New Opera airs Wednesday, April 28 at 8 p.m. and the thirty-minute pre-show broadcast event opening night of Moby Dick April 30 at 7 p.m. Visit WRR’s podcast page to hear this entire interview.

The Meadows Museum presents Charles IV The Meadows Museum of SMU presents Royal Splendor in the Enlightenment: Charles IV of Spain, Patron and Collector through July 18. Splendor showcases over 80 works from the exceptional art collection of King Charles IV of Spain (1748-1819). The exhibition, for which the Meadows Museum will be the exclusive venue outside of Spain, offers visitors the opportunity to discover for the first time the exquisite taste of Charles IV, who was one of the most important collectors both of his time and in the history of the Spanish monarchy. His interests were not only refined, but extremely varied, as evidenced in the innumerable paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures, books, coins and musical instruments he collected by both contemporaneous and earlier artists. Many of the works from Splendor have never traveled to the U.S. including Francisco de Goya’s portrait of the king which makes its first appearance outside of Madrid in 2000 years. “During his reign, Charles IV created a highly sophisticated, refined and cosmopolitan court for which the arts played a major role,” said Mark Roglan, museum director. “The Combination of collection works from the past as well as investing in those of the present, especially in the field of decorative arts, became part of the daily life of this king, whose artistic taste was among the finest in his time Mark Roglan and in the history of the Spanish Monarchy.” One piece of interest, Panini’s Gallery of Cardenal Silvio Valenti Gonzaga, pictured to the right offers a glimpse into the size of the entire collection and how the works would have been displayed in Charles IV’s time. The collection includes some of the finest examples of art styles of the day, from Rococo paintings to a stunning Neoclassical dessert centerpiece of semi-precious stones, lapis lazuli, gilded bronze and enamel. Other highlights include the queen’s ceremonial throne with its Giovanni Paolo Panini, Gallery of Cardenal Silvio Valenti Gonzaga, 18-foot-tall canopy, an elaborate sedan chair 1761, oil on canvas. El Escorial, in which she was carried by footmen, a gilded Casa de campo del Principe, Nabronze, porcelain and enamel bird cage clock, tional Heritage and a shotgun of wood, steel, gold and silver belonging to the king, an avid hunter. Also included are works by Francisco de Goya, the first court painter under Charles IV.

Beauty observed at the Wyly All this month, the Dallas Theater Center transforms their season to festival format for Neil LaBute’s Beauty Plays. The 6th floor, 100seat space in the Wyly Theatre hosts The Shape of Things, directed by Matthew Gray, Fat Pig, directed by Kevin Moriarty and reasons to be pretty, directed by Joel Ferrel. Designed so it’s possible to see the entire Beauty trilogy in a 48 hour time span, the DTC is the first organization to offer the Beauty trilogy in one season, much less one weekend! From The Shape of Things- Steven WalComprised of only 6 actors portraying ters and Abbey Siegworth -photo Brandon 12 different characters, all three productions Thibodeaux occur in a 15’x16’ space, roughly the same area as the average master bedroom. The Beauty Plays come complete with a downloadable study guide which, among other things, points out that over 100 pieces of pizza will be used in the run of Fat Pig, 1000 images are projected during Shape and the lockers in reasons become a scoreboard later in the production. Out of town and planning a vacation? You could wait till the first week of May for true culture overload (if that’s possible.) Consider taking in the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Thursday and Shape Friday only to start your Saturday off doing yoga on the lawn of the Nasher Sculpture Center and take in reasons and Fat Pig that afternoon and evening. Get a good night’s sleep because Sunday means a matinee of Moby-Dick with the Dallas Opera followed by Death of a Salesman that evening.
