Richard Wagner was no feminist. And yet he wrote such strong female characters in the Ring, from the earth goddess Erda and Wotan's wife, Fricka, to Brünnhilde, the true hero of the story.
Director Francesca Zambello and mezzo-sopranos Jamie Barton (Fricka, Second Norn, and Waltraute, 2018) and Ronnita Miller (Erda and First Norn, 2018) join author and professor in Women’s Studies at the University of Michigan Naomi André for a conversation about the complexity of female characters in Wagner’s Ring cycle and the power of women to heal destruction.
