Book Description

Aug. 27 2009
Designed as a companion volume to 2008's "Inside the Ring", which focused on the four operas comprising Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen", this new volume features more than a dozen original essays focusing on all of Wagner's non-Ring operas. Part one looks at the individual operas, including "Der Fliegende Hollander", "Tannhauser", "Lohengrin", "Tristan und Isolde", "Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg", and "Parsifal". Part two reveals the connections between Wagnerian opera and other arts, including dance, filmmaking, and written fiction. Finally, Part three examines Wagner's operas in performance, featuring interviews with mezzosoprano Michelle DeYoung and heldentenor Ben Heppner, both well-known for their Wagnerian performances. The book also includes several photographs from current productions by the Metropolitan Opera and other opera companies, along with a recommended discography of performances.
