Many people find Wagner’s music loud, bombastic and overpowering; but the exquisitely beautiful music in Lohengrin makes this his best opera. It has everything - great choruses, beautiful arias, stirring drama in addition to a damsel in distress and a knight in shinning armor. Opera Southwest’s spring production is a first in New Mexico. Attend this class and find out who the mysterious stranger really is.
