Our Wagner

185 words

wagner-03Today is the 130th anniversary of Richard Wagner’s death in Venice. May 22, 2013 is the 200th anniversary of Wagner’s birth. To mark this occasion, Counter-Currents/North American New Right will run a symposium on “Our Wagner.” The symposium will consist of essays, reviews, poems, podcasts, and videos on Wagner’s life, work, and ongoing significance for the metapolitical project of the North American New Right and the New Right in general. Suggested topics include:

  • Wagner’s operas as music and drama
  • The mythological and historical sources of Wagner’s dramas
  • Wagner’s artistic theories
  • Wagner on culture and politics
  • Wagner and Schopenhauer
  • Wagner and Nietzsche
  • Wagner, Christianity, and paganism
  • Wagner in Traditionalist perspective
  • Wagner and the Jewish question
  • Wagner and race
  • Wagner, vegetarianism, and animal rights
  • Wagner and the Third Reich
  • Wagner and film
  • Wagner and psychology
  • Wagner and popular culture

The best essays will be reprinted in North American New Right vol. 2. Or, if we have enough material, we will publish an entire book.

Please contact me at if you wish to participate in this project.

    Wagner a man with numerous flaws as a human being, was nevertheless, a true Titan of the musical experience. His artistry is ethereal, and reaches the heights of the spiritual experience. He cannot be ignored or taken lightly, by people looking for a real experience in transformation. The Japanese sure value his music and buy seats at the Wagner festival by the hundreds, while in Germany, he is mainly attended to by the elderly generation, a real trajedy!!

      Bobby mentions older generations attends operas. I’ve noted that here in USA. I sure wish current generation of whites would instill appreciation of classical music into our younger ones, as it does appear the young ones seem to prefer non-white music over white music. However, I’m seeing more younger people attending Gilbert & Sullivan performances in the last 5+ years, so I’m encouraged.

    Awesome! Totally looking forward to this.

    This is my favorite Wagner piece: Domingo kills it.

    I grew up with Gilbert & Sullivan operetta music, and based on that, I love Mozart’s opera music as there are some similarities. I know Wagner is different. The only Wagner opera I’ve seen live is The Flying Dutchman. I did speak to a gal who attended a Wagner opera – we were comparing Mozart and Wagner. She said Wagner’s operas are more emotional. She cited an example of her husband – who rarely cries. The only times she saw him cry was at his father’s funeral AND during one of Wagner’s opera arias in one of performances they attended.

    It might be worth tracking down two issues of Nouvelle Ecole that focus on Wagner, namely no. 30, Autumn-Winter 1978, and nos. 31-32, Spring 1979.
