"The Trouble with WagneR"

a new book out in the US

writer : Michael P. Steinberg, director guy cassiers voor de scale milaan en opera berlijn ,
met fotografie van koen broos

"In this unique and hybrid book, cultural and music historian Michael P. Steinberg combines a close
analysis of Wagnerian music drama with a personal account of his work as a dramaturg on the
bicentennial production of The Ring of the Nibelung for the Teatro alla Scala Milan and the Berlin
State Opera. Steinberg shows how Wagner uses the power of a modern mythology to heighten music’s
claims to knowledge, thereby fusing not only art and politics, but truth and lies as well. Rather
than attempting to separate value and violence, or “the good from the bad,” as much Wagner
scholarship as well as popular writing have tended to do, Steinberg proposes that we confront this
paradox and look to the capacity of the stage to explore its depths and implications.

Drawing on decades of engagement with Wagner and of experience teaching opera across disciplines,

The Trouble with Wagner is packed with novel insights for experts and interested readers alike."
