Elgin Symphony Orchestra ~ Inside the Music™ with Andrew Grams: Wagner’s The Ring ~ Main Stage

Friday, November 2, 2018

Excerpts from Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung Andrew Grams and the ESO Everyone loves our new Inside the Music programs. These “Music 101” events are designed for classical music newcomers, and are casual and relaxed. Our regular ESO fans love discovering new musical insights as well! Music Director Andrew Grams leads this journey through a musical masterpiece, with the ESO playing excerpts throughout. After intermission, the audience experiences the entire work with a deeper, richer connection to the music. Food and drinks are welcome in the hall. Popcorn provided by Mama Lee’s Gourmet Popcorn. Dive deep into excerpts from Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung, a series of four epic music dramas based on Germanic folktales. The Ring cycle highlights the stories and struggles of gods, mortal heroes and mythical creatures, the Valkyries. The Nibelung (dwarf) is Alberich, who creates a ring using gold stolen from the Rhine River.
