The Brand Library will be hosting a talk entitled The Men of the Ring of the Nibelung. Richard Wagner never knew his father. However there were many male influences throughout his life: philosophically, spiritually, personally and creatively. In this talk the speaker will look at a number of these male influences and their connection to the characters that Wagner created in his monumental â€œRing Cycleâ€. The talk will be given by Los Angeles Opera Speaker's Bureau member Steve Kohn. Admission is FREE. For more information on the LA Opera production of the Ring Cycle: http://www.laoperaring.com

CHALK ARTISTS WANTED
SkyPilot Theatre Company of Los Angeles is looking for an Artist who can work with chalk to draw a clown and a play title before and during our upcoming performances of the west coast premiere of "The Clowny Plays", 3 short one-acts with a colorfully absurd twist. The Artist would be drawing the picture for about 15 minutes while the audience is entering the theatre along with the title of the first play. Then, in between plays they would come out and erase the title and draw the next one while the actors get ready for the next show (probably between 2 and 3 minutes time).
