Beyond the Basics—
A Ring Study Day
March 4, 2017, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Rehearsal Room Gockley, Wortham Theater Center
$79 per person (lunch included)
We invite those who crave a deeper understanding of the Ring to join us for a day-long symposium exploring various aspects of the composer and the piece, including his controversial anti-Semitic beliefs and their relevance to the Ring. The study of leitmotifs comes to a climactic conclusion as we look closely at the final scene of the cycle. HGO Dramaturg Paul Hopper will be joined by Wagner scholars in this stimulating and lively program.
