Presented by Matthew Timmermans

The role of Brünnhilde is one of the most difficult in the soprano repertoire, and the way in which sopranos have approached singing and training the voice for this mammoth challenge has changed and evolved over time. In this first lecture, we will explore the early performance traditions of Wagnerian singing and discuss the influence of singers such as Lilli Lehmann, Kirsten Flagstad, Astrid Varnay, and others.

This course has four sessions. To purchase all sessions of Singers of the Ring, please click here.

This session will be held in the Opera Learning Center, located on the 6th Floor of the Samuel B. and David Rose Building at Lincoln Center, 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. For questions, please call the LCE Ticket Line at 212-769-7028, Monday-Friday 10am-4pm.
