Desiree Mays – "Wagner's Women: Real and Imagined"

September 13, 2014 - 8:00 am

Desiree Mays returns to San Francisco and the Wagner Society of Northern California with an interesing talk entitled “Wagner’s Women: Real and Imagined”

At one point the three most important women in Wagner’s life came together under one roof: Minna, his wife; Mathilde, his current beloved; and Cosima, married to another man at the time. Simultaneously, he was bringing to life Brünnhilde and her sisters and the doomed Isolde. Desirée will attempt to unravel this and other similar situations with direct quotes, images and, of course, Wagner’s music.
