Die Walkure (3/27/19) – 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.

Next Session:

El Gato Montes (4/24/19) – Set in Spain, two men vie for the love of the same woman. One is a brave and successful matador. The other had defended the woman’s honor when they were both young. Forced to flee to the mountains, he becomes an outlaw, and takes the name El Gato Montes – the Wildcat.
