    This is no ordinary night at the opera! One of the world’s most sought after Wagnerian bass-baritones lives among us! Alan Held, Wichita State alumnus and Professor, sings the thrilling music of Wotan, Hans Sachs, and Scarpia in an evening that will resonate in your ears. Powerful orchestrations together with the glorious WSO Chorus will ignite Wagner’s Magic Fire Music  and celebrate the festivities that conclude Die Meistersinger. With additional familiar music by Bizet, Verdi, Puccini, and music by Borodin that found a second life in the Broadway musical Kismet, this is truly a musical feast for everyone’s most indulgent tastes.
