Livid Wagnerites replace Dame Gwyneth with Dame Annemain
You will remember that Dame Gwyneth Jones had a difference of opinion with the Wagner Society and has taken her masterclass o Bayreuth.
The Wagner Society is refusing to take this lying down.
Here’s the latest:
WAGNER SOCIETY SINGING COMPETITION 2019
As previously announced, The Wagner Society will not be holding a Singing Competition in 2018, but the event will resume in 2019.
Our support for the next generation of Wagner singers is a major priority for the Society, and we have been considering how to provide and expand this support in the future.
Dame Anne Evans has kindly agreed to be involved in the 2019 Singing Competition, together with Malcolm Rivers of The Mastersingers and Henry Kennedy, a Committee member and himself a very talented young musician.
Dame Anne and Malcolm Rivers have been involved with auditions for the forthcoming Longborough Ring Cycle, so they have an excellent view of the talent available. It will be a privilege for The Wagner Society to be involved in hosting Singing Competitions for Wagner singers during the development of the Longborough Ring over the next five years.
