Piotr Gajewski, conductor 

Attention Wagner novices and aficionados alike! Enjoy selections from each of Richard Wagner’s 10 best-known operas to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Highlights include the Overture to The Flying Dutchman, an opera about re-demption through love; Ride of the Valkyries from Die Walküre, heard in many popular movies and commercials; the stirring curtain-raiser  Prelude to Die Meistersinger; and the intense Prelude and Liebestod (“Love-Death”) from Wagner’s vaunted music-drama about the immortal lovers, Tristan and Isolde.
