WS Northern Califormia - Webinar "Wagner: From the Middle Ages to Modernity"
WSNC Saturday October 24th 1:00 p.m. (Pacific Time)

Simon Williams will join us for a webinar: "Wagner: From the Middle Ages to Modernity". 

Professor Williams will be talking about similarities and differences between Wagner's use of the Medieval landscape in Lohengrin and Tristan und Isolde. Williams will discuss how in Lohengrin Wagner provides us with the crowning masterpiece of Grand Opera and how, in Tristan und Isolde, he moves in a very different direction, which does not entirely abandon the past, but points toward the modern theatre. Simon Williams, now retired, was a Professor in the Department of Theater and Dance at the University of California Santa Barbara for thirty years.

Professor Williams has taught at universities on four continents, including the University of Regina, of Alberta, Cornell University and since 1984 at University of California Santa Barbara. Williams has also published books on Wagner and on actors and acting.Webinar registration will be sent shortly.
