Brett Mitchell, conductor. WAGNER/ arr. Maazel The Ring Without Words. Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung notoriously takes days to perform in its entirety. In this unique treatment created by conductor and composer Lorin Maazel, Music Director Brett Mitchell leads the orchestra through the fundamental sequences of Wagner’s Ring cycle in a once-in-a-lifetime performance. (Mitchell will describe the leitmotifs in a musical demonstration at the top of the concert, preceding a condensed performance without words.) This is an illuminating and rare performance of The Ring that will resonate with all audiences. [Organizer's description]
