Book Reading – The Goethe Institut San Francisco

December 12, 2013 - 3:00 am

“Tristan’s Shadow – Sexuality and the Total Work of Art After Wagner”

Stanford Assistant Professor of German Studies Dr. Adrian Daub will be reading excerpts from his forthcoming book next week.  The reading and a reception will be held Wednesday December 11th at the Goethe Institut at 7:00 p.m.

The book entitled “Tristan’s Shadow – Sexuality and the Total Work of Art After Wagner”  deals with eroticism in German opera after Wagner. Daub traces the dual influence of “Gesamtkunstwerk” and eroticism from their classic expressions in “Tristan und Isolde” into the work of the generation of composers that followed. The book will be released soon on University of Chicago Press.

Suggested donation to the Goethe Institut is $5
