Biography

Richard Wagner, the master of Romantic opera

Richard Wagner has aroused both the most unyielding passions and the fiercest hatred alike. Quickly drawn to the world of theatre, in his childhood Wagner staged the mythological dramas he wrote and had his mother, brothers and sisters play their parts. He managed to accomplish great projects from his self-taught education. A choir master in 1833, a conductor in 1834, he composed his first operas in the great Germanic singspiel tradition.
