Wu Man is recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and is a leading ambassador of Chinese music. Her career as a soloist, educator and composer has given her “lute-like” instrument a new role in both traditional and contemporary music.
Carl Maria von Weber is known as the “founder” of German Romantic opera, influencing many later composers like Richard Wagner. He made his biggest impact with “Der Freischutz,” which premiered in 1821. The Virginia Opera will perform “Der Freischutz” in Richmond this weekend at the Carpenter Theatre. The shows are tonight (Friday 2/17) at 8:00 p.m and Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
