Singers of the Ring: Further Fachs

All tickets are sold out!

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 2:00 PM

Presented by Matthew Timmermans

This final lecture concludes the series by looking at the lower voices that perform the Ring. We will look at the role of Wotan and the interpretation of various singers, including Anton van Rooy and Hans Hotter; the dark hued voices that perform Alberich and Hagen, such as Gustav Neidlinger and Gottlob Frick; and the rare contralto sound epitomized by Marianne Brandt. We will end with a discussion of how some mezzo-sopranos began their Ring careers in roles such as Erda or Fricka but from those roles, eventually moved on to Brünnhilde.
