Wagner and Tolkien: The Ring and the Rings

DESCRIPTION: A free talk by Professor Heath Lees

This presentation by Heath Lees will throw new light on Wagner’s Ring and Peter Jackson’s blockbuster film trilogy of Tolkien’s Lord of The Rings. Heath will delve into the teeming comparisons that exist between the two works — comparisons that take on special interest when you realise that Howard Shore sometimes embeds bits of Wagner in his soundtracks, and also takes over Wagner’s so-called leitmotif technique.

VENUE: Thorold Theatre Mentone Grammar

TIME: 7pm

COST: Complimentary

CONTACT DETAILS: On this occasion the Richard Wagner Society of Victoria is sponsoring Heath’s lectures
