Wagner was a composer, polemicist, theatre director, and conductor best known for his operas . He wrote both the libretto and the music for his stage works and established his reputation in the romantic vein of Carl Maria von Weber and Giacomo Meyerbeer. Wager revolutionised opera with his concept, the Gesamtkunstwerk, seeking to synthesize the visual, poetic, musical and dramatic arts with music contributing to the drama

  1. I love Wagner. I remember when I was a kid, my father came home with the opera Lohengrin & made us all sit down & listen to the overture. I wasn’t any older than 7 & I fell in love with it immediately.
