"AVA strikes gold" with Das Rheingold - Broad Street Review

"Returning to his alma mater, 2009 AVA alumnus Ben Wager gave a riveting portrayal of Wotan, king of the gods. He sang with menacing, dark-hued resonance, yet also projected Wotan’s vulnerability to his own vices and the catastrophes that lurk in their shadows." - Chestnut Hill Local

Wagner’s Ring Cycle is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest operatic works ever composed, and Das Rheingold is the first of the four music dramas that comprise the Cycle. AVA alumnus Ben Wager joins the production as Wotan; click here for the entire cast list! Don't miss opera's future stars in this production!
