You shall not pass… up an experience such as this. If dwarfs, giants, elves, and lore are your bag, a trip to Middle Earth might be in the cards. If y’all can’t track down a hobbit or a wizard, the DSO’s Ring Without Words might satisfy your taste for the fantastical. Richard Wagner’s masterpiece, Ring Cycle, may have preceded our fascination with Game of Thrones but the late Maestro Lorin Maazel’s compilation Ring Without Words combines Wagner’s four operatic installments of Der Ring des Nibelungen into one mystifying concert.
Ring Without Words will be performed at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 6 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 7 at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra; 3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-576-5111; dso.org; Tickets are $15-$100.
