The talk will cover the key events leading up to the death of Richard Wagner and try to understand what exactly happened on the day of his death (13th February 1883). This will cover his final writings about women, an argument with Cosima (possibly over Carrie Pringle), the worldwide obituaries, the journey from Venice to Bayreuth with Wagner’s body, and more. Wagner’s favourite coffee shop, church and afternoon pastime in Venice will also be covered, as well as the importance of his Symphony in C Major (the Symphony in C Major, WWV 29, from 1832, is the only completed symphony of Wagner).

Cost: £5 / student-under 30s free.
