OPERA EDWARDSVILLE PRESENTS "A Wagnerian Christmas"

Opera Edwardsville presents 'Christmas at the Wildey: A Wagnerian Christmas'

Presenting Sponsor: Stifel

Performers:
Julie Tabash Kelsheimer, Soprano
Penelope Cousland, Mezzo-soprano
Chase Henry Hopkins, Tenor
*Featured guest soloist: Brittney Yarbrough, Soprano
The Persied String Quartet
The Clarion Brass Quintet
Caroline Robinson, Harp
Dr. Joseph Welch, Piano

For the second annual Christmas at the Wildey, Opera Edwardsville will present 'A Wagnerian Christmas.' While not many would associate Richard Wagner with the holidays, this surprising program transports listeners to Lucerne, Switzerland on December 25 in 1870. Richard Wagner's wife, Cosima awoke that Christmas morning to the sounds of an orchestra playing "The Siegfried Idyll" on the front steps of their villa. Cosima Wagner wrote:

"As I awoke, my ear caught a sound, which swelled fuller and fuller; no longer could I imagine myself to be dreaming: music was sounding, and such music! When it died away, Richard came into my room with the children and offered me the score of the symphonic birthday poem. I was in tears, but so were all the rest of the household. Richard had arranged his orchestra on the staircase, and thus was our Tribschen consecrated forever."

This musical program features Cosima Wagner's Christmas gift and continues to explore the work of Richard Wagner through the lens of Wagner's life & history and the Germanic Christmas tradition. Join Opera Edwardsville for a festive classical program that highlights the music of Wagner, Humperdinck, and Rossini.

OE welcomes St. Louis' beloved soprano, Julie Tabash Kelsheimer, Scottish mezzo-soprano, Penelope Cousland who makes her US debut, OE founder and tenor, Chase Henry Hopkins, the Persied Quartet, pianist Dr. Joseph Welch, harpist Carline Robinson, and St. Louis' premier brass quintet, Clarion Brass.

Tickets: •$50 Concert & Champagne Reception   •$35 Concert Only
