Opera by Request is an opera company where the singers and not the director, choose the opera. Opera by Request and Berlin Wagner Gruppe present Wagner’s Ring Cycle – an epic feat – performed in concert with English surtitles and piano accompaniment.
Bass-baritone Andrew Tees (who plays Wotan) and Director/Conductor pianist William Shookhoff dropped by to tell us about how Opera by Request was formed, and the trials and tribulations of putting on a Wagner opera.
Listen to the interview here:
Wagner’s Ring Cycle takes place February 14 – 17 at College Street United Church, on the corner at Bathurst. For more information, please click here. Thankfully, he has already booked a page-turner and I’m spared this hours-long duty!
