Essays on Richard Wagner and Parsifal Including Robert Calverley Treveleyan’s The New Parsifal
Keith-Smith, Brian

eBook Available: Essays on Richard Wagner and Parsifal


New insights are given on the background to staging Tannhäuser and Parsifal. Sections on the illustrations to and parodies of Parsifal extend previous research, with special emphasis on the almost forgotten stage-designer Ludwig Sievert and early reception of the opera. The inclusion of a satirical text and Trevelyan’s parody reveal some of the less serious reception.
