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.
