(p.1) Introduction Wagnerian Songlines
The Trouble with Wagner

Michael P. Steinberg

University of Chicago Press

This introduction seeks to ground Richard Wagner's practice of music drama as text (music, words, and production history from 1876 to the 2013 bicentennial production staged for La Scala Milan and the Berlin State Opera, in which the author participated as a dramaturg) and context (political, cultural, and intellectual history). The central claim of the introduction and the book generally involves the inseparability of music and politics, of truth and lies.

Keywords:   music drama, ambivalence, opera, knowing, being, leitmotif
