Wilhelm Richard Wagner was a German composer, theatre director, polemicist, and conductor, who is primarily known for his operas. He revolutionized opera through his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk ("total work of art"), by which he sought to synthesize the poetic, visual, musical and dramatic arts, with music subsidiary to drama.

Biography Edit

Alice: Otherlands Edit

Wagner appeared in the London Royal Opera House standing atop a podium of trumpets, conducting his opera Der Ring des Nibelungen. He only narrated Alice's immersion to his Otherland through his music, and did not speak throughout his opera.

At the end of his opera, Wagner flipped his music sheet book closed and Alice stated that she "had [her] fill of the theatre for a while."[1]

Appearance Edit

Wagner had gray hair and was wearing a black tuxedo, pants and shoes when he conducted his opera.
