From its beginnings shortly following the birth of Opera in Italy, German-language Opera has built itself a unique and storied perch in the history of musical theater. While many of its early offerings were relatively forgettable, names like Mozart, Weber and, particularly, Wagner revolutionizing Opera forever, adding power and layers of texture to the orchestral score and incorporating German mythology to the narrative. German winemaking tradition dates back even further, with the earliest plantings made in the Ancient Roman Era. Through all of those centuries of viticulture and vinification, techniques have been refined so much that Germany is renowned for producing some of the finest wines made on Earth. Join us as we welcome back Marcus Hanson of Small Lot Wine & Spirits to dazzle us with a tasting of German wines paired with live performances of selections from some of the most famous German Opera and German appetizers in an evening of education and entertainment.
