Wagner’s Ring: music, myth and philosophy (Derby WEA Day School Summer 2016)

Tutors: Anne Allcock; Tom Corfield; Mike Wheeler; Bettina Lange
Dates: 2 Saturdays 14 and 21 May 2016 10.00.am – 3.00 pm (includes 30mins for lunch – please bring your own)

With a performance of all four operas of The Ring of the Nibelungen coming up in Nottingham in June, we will examine the work and place it in context. As well as the music, the first day includes sessions on Wagner the man, the theatre he built at Bayreuth and his interaction with philosophers of the period. Day two focuses more specifically on The Ring, dealing with the dramatic and musical issues that it raises.
