Die Frau ohne Schatten ( Richard Strauss)
Join us for a fascinating lecture about Half-spirit and half-mortal, the Empress lives in fear of a curse: She was allowed to marry an all too human Emperor. But there is a catch, if she doesn’t acquire a human shadow in three days’ time, the spirit world will reclaim her—and turn her husband to stone. What can she do? Helping us find out is, Dr. Simon Williams, emeritus professor in the Department of Theater and Dance at the University of California, Santa Barbara, opera director and world renown lecturer.
