La Clemenza di Tito (2/27/19) – Mozart’s final work, an opera seria, is set in ancient Rome. An intricate web of love, betrayal, hate and forgiveness. It is one of several Mozart operas that explore what it means to be an enlightened leader: the quest for and exercise of power, justice and mercy.

Next Session:

Die Walkure (3/27/19) at 9:30am |  Note earlier time  – Wagner’s monumental Der Ring das Nibelungen took 25 years to complete. He weaves an array of characters, musical themes, Germanic and Nordic myths. We’ll give a brief overview of the Ring and focus on Die Walkure, the second of four operas that make up the Ring. Wotan, the ruler of the gods, must make painful choices that will impact his own children – including his favorite daughter, Brunnhilde.
