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.

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.
