Trilogy: An Opera Company, directed by Kevin Maynor, performs Wagner's Das Rheingold ; the first in the composer's famed Ring cycle; in collaboration with the New Jersey Festival Orchestra. A vocal feast and a great introduction to opera for all, Das Rheingold begins with a tale of the Rhein maidens who evade the advances of the troll-like Alberich. Gods, giants and an earth mother populate this powerful fantasy about a cursed, magical ring.
