In partnership with the Metropolitan Opera Guild, a vocal showcase featuring excerpts from Wagner’s Lohengrin.
Lohengrin is the third opera of Wagner’s middle period, and it continues a style of tonality that the composer had developed earlier in Tannhäuser. Lohengrin’s musical style also anticipates Wagner’s future leitmotif technique and, as with all of his operas and later musikdramas, reflects the bigger-than-life form of grand opera. Join Jane Marsh at the Kaplan Penthouse as she and four soloists explore this thrilling white-knight fairy tale.
