Members may have already heard that the Melbourne Ring is to have a new Wotan/Wanderer, James Johnson. You can read about him at the following links:
This link to Opera Australia has the full cast: https://opera.org.au/melbourne/ring-cycle
We have been advised by OA that tickets for the Ring will be sent out in September. A flyer for the Pre-opera Presentations is to be included in this mail out. Booking details for “Exploring the Ring with Heath Lees” are on our website with bookings online at the MRC website http://www.melbournerecital.com.au/events/series/exploring-the-ring-cycle-talks/
The RWS members have been able to attend many events linked to our support for Liane and Bradley and this is making a very busy year. Some members may have thought that our association with Opera Australia included entry to the Ring Lounge but this is not the case. The Ring Lounge is only available to Ring Leaders and Patrons of OA.
Ring related events still to come include
6pm 15 August Associate Music Director, Tony Legge plus Liane Keegan and James Egglestone evening for members and friends (details from firstname.lastname@example.org and on website)
Watch for a notice about a sneak preview soirée of “Wagner in Paris” in September for members and friends (details soon).
