OLLI at Duke: Ken Hoover on Richard Wagner

Winter Term: Wednesdays 9-10:30 at Judea Reform Center The year 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of Richard Wagner's birth. His controversial life and his contribution to the world of art will be presented in videos, PowerPoint presentations, with selections from his operas--all under the rubric of Father M. Owen Lee's little book "Wagner; The Terrible Man and His Truthful Art." Our first class will introduce you to the man and some of the controversy his life engendered. After that we will follow his phenomenally creative journey from Die Feen ("The Fairies") through Parsifal. More information is available at: http://www.learnmore.duke.edu/olli/
