WCPE Community & Arts Liaison Tara Lynn announces the winter 2013 edition of the Local Arts Series, a collaboration from WCPE Radio and Quail Books & Music, January 16, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. at Quail Ridge Books and Music, 3522 Wade Avenue, Raleigh, NC. For this free community event, NC Opera General Director Eric Mitchko will share his enthusiasm and vision for the company's upcoming concert of music of Richard Wagner, in honor of the bicentennial of the composer's birth. Local Arts Series events are part lecture, part performance; Mitchko will be joined by a performer.
The talk, titled Why I Love Wagners Ring, will be a brief introduction to the musical world of Richard Wagner, who reinvented opera in order to tell the story of the worlds creation, destruction and redemption through love.
North Carolina Opera is excited to perform this amazing collection of Wagner opera in concert, says Mitchko. It will feature some of operas top talents.
