Hi, I’m Marty Kirschen.

These offerings in opera and the arts grow from my influences and avocational pursuits while growing up and in Germany and then living in New York City and Los Angeles.

The primary works I offer are gift and educational items in the field of opera. My mainstay, sold since 1979, is a family tree of the characters in Richard Wagner's "The Ring of the Nibelung".  They have been sold at major opera houses in the United States.

In the past several years I have added other opera products. They include posters, bookmarks, keyrings, t shirts and more. By exploring the sections of the site you will be able to view them for yourself.

Additional gift and educational items can viewed through looking at the sections as well. They are representative of my vocational pursuits and avocational interests. The main areas of these works are art from nature and writings.
