The Academy in Bayreuth

01 Aug The Academy in Bayreuth


During the Bayreuth Festival’s centennial season the European Academy of Music Theatre (EMA) was invited to present its publication Richard Wagners Der Ring des Nibelungen. Europäische Traditionen und Paradigmen on 30 July, 2011 at the Markgrafen Bookstore in Bayreuth.

While Sieghart Döhring gave a concise overview of observable tendencies in the current Wagner reception, Isolde Schmid-Reiter delivered deeper insights into the publication’s topics and questions. Inspired by statements from the audience, Susanne Vill, who contributed an article that negotiates the Ring in post-modern interpretations, commented on the heterogeneous reception of Wagner’s tetralogy during the recent years.
