Description

Tristan and the Delights of Ambiguity

The span of Richard Wagner's life was a period of transformational change — in politics, science and the arts. Wagner's revolutionary masterpiece, Tristan und Isolde, was, in crucial ways, a product of its time. Jim Holman will talk about Tristan in the context of these historic changes, and the evolution of Wagner's creative life.

Jim Holman is the author of the award-winning Wagner's Ring: A Listener's Companion and Concordance (1997) and is the Editor of Wagner Moments (2007) and Quo Vadis, Wagner? (2013). He has been the Chairman of the Wagner Society of Washington DC since its inception in 1998. He regularly writes and lectures about Wagner. He is a graduate of Princeton (BA) and Harvard (MA) Universities, and lives in Washington with his wife, Diana Lang Holman.
