"For many years principal heroic tenor of the Finnish National Opera, Pekka Nuotio (1929-89) also appeared at Covent Garden and the Metropolitan where, as Tannhäuser to Birgit Nilsson's Elisabeth and Venus, he sang in the last Wagnerian performances at the old house, and, as Tristan, appeared briefly during the first season in the new. The voice itself was clearly remarkable, particularly as it combined the power and body of a Tannhäuser with the ringing high notes of a Manrico."
