Commonwealth Concert Opera: Wagner

August 13, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall

On August 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall the Commonwealth Concert Opera will offer an evening of Scenes and Arias from the operas of Richard Wagner. Promising young professional singers join seasoned veterans, soprano Caroline Whisnant and tenor James Taylor, accompanied by pianist Charles Staples and narrator Reese Williams.

The performance includes arias “Dich teure Halle” from Tannhäuser, “Notung, neidliches schwert” from Siegfried, “In fernem Land” from Lohengrin, and the Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde. Additionally, performers will sing duets from Tannhäuser and the epic Love Duet from Die Walkűre.

We hope you will join us for this evening of great music that will be made more accessible by narration, providing context for each scene. Our show is just over an hour and the dress code is SUPER casual; including the cast!

Tickets are $15, which includes a free glass of wine or soft drink.
