Long before “Game of Thrones,” “Lord of the Rings” and “Harry Potter” captured imaginations, German composer Richard Wagner inspired fantastic visions through his music.

Posted by Julie in Indianapolis Opera, News

Happy Birthday Wanda June began life as a play by Kurt Vonnegut in October 1971 at New York’s Theater de Lys. The play was Vonnegut’s first attempt at a stage work.

When Harold left Penelope, she was a ditzy carhop; when he returns after eight years lost in the Amazon, he finds that she has gone to college, majored in…
