Following the success of The Essential Puccini in 2009 and last year's The Essential Rachmaninoff, this season's focus is on the works of Richard Wagner. The Essential Wagner features favorites from his greatest operas and best-known choral highlights! The program includes gems from Lohengrin, The Flying Dutchman, Rienzi, Tannhäuser, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and more. Vocal soloists are provided by the Evelyn Lear and Thomas Stewart Emerging Singers Program, a partnership with the Wagner Society of Washington, DC.
Performance Timing: Part One - 60 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 60 min.
