Hunding-Saal: This is a monochrome photograph taken of Hoffman’s 14 set designs (number 4) for Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen opera in 1876. Artist: Josef Hoffman (1831–1904). Photographer: Victor Angerer (1839–1894).

Once again Wagner’s Ring Cycle of four operas is being presented at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. Here at Anthroposophy NYC, we will continue to explore the mythical journey of these music dramas with the second opera: Die Walküre.

As we delve into the stories in Wagner’s mythical series, we will consider our own relationships to these myths and how they live in us. We will also examine the various circumstances and characters through an anthroposophic lens.

Next presentations in the series: May 24 (Siegfried) and Jun 13 (Götterdämmerung).

You don’t need to know the operas to attend this lecture series. If you are interested though, click here to learn more about the current MET production. There will be a radio broadcast of the Ring Cycle from the Met on Saturday Matinees, starting on March 9th with Das Rheingold on Sirius XM Radio.
