NOTES ON MUSIC with JOE: Wagner's Medieval Fairy Tale 'LOHENGRIN'



Fort Worth Opera's 'Lohengrin' - April 7 & 9, 1965

This week, we present another fascinating archival talk by Fort Worth Opera's Artistic Director Joe Illick about Lohengrin, with a performance by tenor Nicholas Simpson


Richard Wagner's ravishing, three-act medieval fairy tale, features one of the composer's most famous pieces of music, the Act II "Bridal Chorus," and became a pivotal work in his transition from romantic composer to the architect of "music dramas."
