Carr Moderates ‘Facing the Tarnish on Das Rheingold’

Das Rheingold, composed by Richard Wagner, is a bold, visually stunning opera that many regard as the “gold” standard in traditional German opera. As part of a Das Rheingold lecture series leading up to the performance of the opera at Belmont’s Fisher Center, Associate Dean of the Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business and incoming President of the Nashville Opera Board of Directors Dr. Cheryl Slay Carr moderated a panel discussion about separating Wagner’s antisemitism from his music, bias in opera and Nashville Opera’s initiatives to democratize the art form.

Das Rheingold will be performed at Belmont’s Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on May 6 and May 8. The final lecture in the series, also moderated by Carr, will be held on May 4 from 5 – 6 p.m. at the Liff Opera Center.
