Both the RIENZI study day by Michael Lee and the (short!) AGM followed by the very interesting talk from Ian Fox:- 10 things you (probably) did not know about Wagner were very well attended and enjoyed by all.
Our series of events continues on Monday, April 25 (in the UAC at 8pm) with a talk by Patrick Mason on The Myth of Opera: Monteverdi to Wagner
On Monday, May 16 there will be a talk by Deborah Kelleher on My Journey to Wagne in the UAC at 8pm
Finally, a group of our members will be travelling to Leipzig, Germany in June for the Leipzig 22 Wagner Festival.
