Cultural Capital: Women of The Ring

Enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Francesca Zambello’s production of “The Ring.”

Join Francesca Zambello, Artistic Director of the Washington National Opera (WNO), at the museum for a conversation about the women in Richard Wagner’s Ring, an extraordinary four-opera saga which WNO will present in its entirety in May. 

Zambello and members of WNO’s creative team are joined by cast members for a conversation on the roles of women in Wagner’s Ring—from the Valkryies to Brünnhilde. Cast members contribute musical excerpts from the opera to illustrate and enliven the conversation. Followed by a reception.
