Richard Wagner is probably the composer with the profoundest understanding of the essence of Attic tragedy who, in his writings as well as his staging of music theatre, interwove the symbolic forms of myth  with concept.

One of these fascinating themes is the "Myth and the Holy in Richard Wagner". from the blood of Greek tragedy to the Gesamtkunstwerk (Antonio Tombolini Editore, 2017), a work by Pietro Tessarin.
