Andris Nelsons will lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra in its first-ever full-length performance — anywhere — of Wagner’s “Das Rheingold,” a monumental undertaking that could easily break all Tanglewood attendance records.
“It’s easy to think that if you don’t come from a big metropolitan area, you don’t have a shot. But I’ve conducted all over the world. You have to believe that it’s possible. Nothing comes easy. The true joy in life is to be at your best because you’ve worked hard to develop your craft. Then when you nail it, nothing is better than that.”
— Conductor Matthew Savery, who grew up in Lee, Massachusetts
