Wagner's Ring as Eco-Parable

October 19, 2013 - 8:00 am

The Wagner Society is always excited to welcome Dr. Thomas Grey to our lecture schedule. In his talk Professor Grey will discuss recent productions of Wagner’s Ring, wherein global ecology provides the framework for the production. From Wotan ripping a limb from the World Ash to create his spear, to the overflowing of the banks of the Rhine in the climactic ending of Götterdämmerung, the abuse of the natural world is often a focal point in modern Ring productions. Dr. Grey will cover many Ring productions including the recent San Francisco Ring realized for the stage by Francesca Zambello.

Please join us for a stimulating talk and post-lecture discussion.
