American tenor Paul Appleby has won fans for his lead roles in Nico Muhly’s Two Boys, Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, and Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at the Metropolitan Opera, and here in the Bay Area, he played the lovesick miner Joe Cannon in the world premiere production of John Adams’ and Peter Sellars’ Girls of the Golden West at San Francisco Opera. In his Cal Performances debut, Appleby, accompanied by pianist Conor Hanick, presents a program featuring Schumann and Schubert songs, Berg’s Altenberg Lieder (traditionally performed by a mezzo-soprano), and Beethoven’s lone song cycle, An die ferne Geliebte.
