About the Event

WSWDC  and Politics and Prose Bookstore will co-sponsor a discussion by New  Yorker music critic Alex Ross and classical music and theater critic  Anne Midgette of his new book, Wagnerism:  Art and Politics in the  Shadow of Music.  The book explores the ways in which the impact of  Wagner’s work was felt by groundbreaking 20th century artists such as  Virginia Woolf, Thomas Mann, Paul Cézanne, Isadora Duncan, and Luis  Buñuel, and by other cultural and political figures including, most  famously, Adolf Hitler.  This event will offer Wagner Society members  and friends an introduction to the book in advance of a planned  interview of Alex Ross by WSWDC Chairman Jim Holman in January (details  to be announced).
