    Discourse Bayreuth 2020: Bernhard Neuhoff in conversation with Barrie Kosky and Julia Spinola

    Here it’s all about art – Bayreuth 1924 and 1951. 50-minute discourse by Bernhard Neuhoff with Barrie Kosky and Julia Spinola deals, among other things, with these topics: What positive aspects can be discovered in the work of the anti-Semite and composer Richard Wagner? How are moral transgressions of the past dealt with? What about the Angstlust in Wagner’s work?
