Metropolitan Opera star Eric Owens is as much at home with classical music as he is with contemporary. It’s no wonder, having spent the last 40 years learning and plying his craft. The American bass-baritone is one of the biggest names in US opera and brings his star quality to perform the role of the devil in Berlioz’s The Damnation of Faust with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
