The best and biggest voice on the stage belongs to Christian Van Horn as Timur (also making his Dallas Opera debut), whose rich bass has just the right amount of ring and not a hint of the woofishness that haunts other low voices. There isn’t much acting in this role until we get to the death of Liù. Here, Van Horn produced the most touching moments in the entire production. Many daubed their eyes when the scene expired to its practically inaudible end.
