Presented by John J.H. Muller
Duration: 1 hour
Wagner’s first mature opera, begun when he was 27 years old, marks the emergence of many of the musical and stylistic elements he would come to develop in his later works. Join lecturer John J. H. Muller as he examines the musical themes and leitmotifs that represent the opera’s mysterious title character, the stormy sea, and the currents of love, passion, and redemptive faith that run through the work.
