Village Roadshow Theatrette – State Library of Victoria Conference Centre
179 La Trobe Street, Melbourne, VIC, 3000
If you are going to be in Melbourne during Opera Australia’s Ring cycles in November/December next year, you won’t want to miss one of the full-day symposia A Day with the Ring being held between the performances of Die Walküre and Siegfried in each cycle, on Thursday 24 November, Saturday 3 December and Tuesday 13 December 2016.
Conceived and chaired by Peter Bassett on behalf of Renaissance Tours, these symposia will feature sessions on The Evolving Stage, dealing with the changing focus of Ring productions since Wagner’s time including filmed reconstructions of the 1876 performances; Visions of the Ring, the relationship between the Ring and the visual arts; the Götterdämmerung Choruses; What happened to Siegfried, the changing place of Siegfried at the heroic centre of Wagner’s drama, and the most celebrated performance of a great Victorian-born Brünnhilde, Marjorie Lawrence.
There will also be conversations with singers from the Melbourne production and with musicians of the Ring orchestra, and distinguished panellists will share their views on the production.
The symposia will be held in the conference centre of the monumental State Library of Victoria, and the day will include a buffet lunch and morning and afternoon teas.
Joining Peter will be art expert, author and curator Christopher Menz; Opera Australia Chorus Master Anthony Hunt, and ABC presenter and author Christopher Lawrence as well as special guests from the production, from academia and the media.
