Saul Lilienstein Commentaries on Wagner

While so many opera performances and events have been postponed or moved online, Maestro Saul Lilienstein has generously permitted us to share his commentaries on several of Wagner's operas.

Wagner Institute at Miami Classical Music Festival

2022 production of Das Rheingold is available to watch on Vimeo! This is a wonderful opportunity to see young Wagnerian singers. With the exception of the role of Mime, all singers are performing their roles for the first time. In-depth training was provided by the wonderful Wagner veterans Dolora Zajick and Luana DeVol who also run our American Wagner Project.
