Siegfried 1910Denhof Opera Company

Read more about the opera Siegfried

The overall quality of the Denhof enterprise seems quite remarkable, with the guiding hand of Charles Hedmondt directing the staging, and the current conductor of the Bayreuth Ring controlling the augmented forces of the Scottish Orchestra.

The title role was taken by Francis Maclennan, a Scottish tenor who hada notable career in major German housesy. Presumably this ended with the outbreak of war. Certainly his wife, the soprano Florence Easton, transferred her career from Germany to the USA.
