The Philosophy of the Ring

Lyric, following the lead of our city, state, and federal elected officials, as well as the recommendations of the Chicago Department of Public Health, has made the difficult decision to cancel all performances of Wagner’s Ring cycle and its related festival programming. Learn more about the cancellation here.


Learn from noted philosopher, author, and University of Chicago Law and Ethics professor Martha Nussbaum about Wagner, philosophy, and how the thinking of the time shaped the Ring cycle. Included with Valhalla Circle Siegfried membership.
