Richard Wagner remains, almost 130 years after his death, the most controve rsial composer in the history of music. Creator of huge and hugely ambitiou s operas, which have an immense immediate impact, as well as providing food for endless thought and discussion, Wagner has had an influence on many fi elds outside music. In this lively pocket guide, Michael Tanner gives conci se accounts of all his operas, showing how important it is to grasp the dra matic situations at every point, and indicating some of the key musical fea tures.
