Richard Wagner and the Nationalization of Feeling
Prof. Michael Steinberg of Brown University and co-curator of the recent exhibit in Berlin’s German Historical Museum explains the influence of Wagner on German nationalism in the mid-19th century and its lasting impact on German self-identity. As Prof. Steinberg explained to The New York Times, “You can’t have a naïve and beautiful production of a Wagner opera in Germany. It’s impossible.”
The presentation, with visuals, will take place at the National Opera Center, 330 Seventh Ave., 7th floor, New York NY. The event will be followed by a social hour with refreshments.
