One Ring: Wagner in the 21st Century
In summer 2007, the Lincoln Center Festival and The Metropolitan Opera
in New York City will present the first 21st-century Met performance of
Der Ring des Nibelungen, performed by the Kirov Opera under Valery
Gergiev of the Marinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. In anticipation of
this grand event, this session will offer a timely revaluation of
Wagner's epic operatic cycle and its continuing relevance in an age of
Terror and Empire. Papers written in English are sought that address the
critical reception, performance, interpretation, structure, or
continuing relevance of Wagner, his opera cycle, the Nibelungenlied, or
other retellings of the source material. Interdisciplinary interests are
encouraged, from literary theory and musicology to philosophy,
aesthetics, and performance politics.=20
Opportunities for engaging revisionist myth-making, narratology, and
cultural criticism abound.=20
Maximum Time Limit for Presentations: 15 minutes
Maximum Length of Abstracts: 300 words
Deadline for Abstracts: April 26, 2006
