Richard Wagner: The Lighter Side (Paperback)
By Terry Quinn

Richard Wagner’s life and works have generally been examined in a very serious manner. This book takes a different and more light-hearted approach, offering readers an illustrated collection of interesting facts, trivia, anecdotes and quotations about the man and his operas. 

For over twenty years, Terry Quinn has collected information on each of Wagner’s 13 completed operas and the difficulties encountered in staging them, famous Wagnerian directors, conductors, and singers, key persons in the composer’s life, and much more. Also included are interviews with current Wagnerian scholars.

“There are many anecdotes, quotes and facts which were new to me (and I read lots). I find its combination of lightness and real content very satisfying.”- Steve Sokolow, late president of the Wagner Society of Northern California
