THE REDEEMER REBORN

Paul Schofield

Sunday, April 11th @ 1:00PM PDT

Traditionally, Wagnerian scholarship has always treated the Ring and Parsifal as two separate works. The Redeemer Reborn: Parsifal as the Fifth Opera of Wagner's Ring shows how Parsifal is in fact actually the fifth opera of the Ring. Author Paul Schofield explains in detail how these five musical dramas portray a single, unbroken story. He shows how the redemption that is not attained in the process of the Ring is finally realized in the events of Parsifal.

Wagner’s 208th Birthday Celebration

REMEMBERING THE PERFECT

WAGNERITE

Sunday, May 23rd @ 1:00PM PDT

Stefan Mickisch was a personal friend of the WSSC and for well over a two decades performed concerts in Bayreuth during the festival. He blessed us as being one the greatest Wagner interpreters both in lecture and as a pianist in performance (he also always blessed us with wonderful seating at his sold-out performances). Saddened deeply by his recent passing at only 58 years old, the WSSC will celebrate Wagner’s 208 th by remembering and enjoying the performances of this true virtuoso.

I AM SIEGFRIED

The Life and Voice of Jess Thomas

Sunday, June 27th @ 1:00PM PDT

Jess Thomas is one of the most famous Wagnerian heldentenors during the 1950-1970 era. He is best known for singing most all the heroic roles, especially Siegfried and Parsifal. In this musical discussion with his two sons, Jess and Victor Thomas, we will pay tribute to this amazing singer and hear the true unlikely story of a young farm boy from South Dakota, arriving on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera in New York to the renowned Bayreuth Festival.
