The Lost Chord: May 22 - Vintage Wagner

Wagner beret

For Wagner’s birthday, enjoy Lawrence Tibbett singing Wotan, a role he never performed on stage, from 1934; Karl Muck conducting “Parsifal,” including the original bells designed for the Transformation Music, from 1927; and Lotte Lehmann and Lauritz Melchior welcoming spring, with the love duet from “Die Walküre,” from 1935. The performances are undiminished by technological limitations and the passage of time. Experience a Wagner power hour, this Sunday at 10 pm.
