THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

But Wotan to your seats—Concerts from the Library of Congress will present one final day of anniversary programming. Capitol-Hillde will be the site of our daytime Wagnerdämmerung events on Saturday, November 23, 2013 (see listings below). They will include a classic documentary about the centennial production of Der Ring des Nibelungen, a talk by acclaimed author Alex Ross about “Black Wagnerism,” and a performance by Margaret Lattimore and Daniel Hobbs of the Wesendonck Lieder.
