Reviewers Wanted

Written By The Wagnerian on Thursday, 4 August 2011 | 9:20:00 am

We go to more Wagner performances then can be commented in here - as we read and listen to works by or about Wagner. The trouble of course is time - there simply isn't enough of it. As you may have noticed I occasionally produce "reviews of the reviews" but even these can be time consuming. Yet I have noticed that people are interested in them - especially when they are of smaller or less well covered opera houses.

So, with that in mind, I am looking for people who would like to submit reviews - which will be fully credited. No word limits and no need to worry about layout or images - that can be done this side. Alternatively, if you have your own blog and would like the first few paragraphs included here and then a link back to your blog that would be as good.

If anyone is interested there are only a few guidelines:

The review must be in English - or if the review is anything other than English then an English translation needs to be included. Don't worry two much about English grammar or spelling (as you can see from mine!) I will, correct as well as I can.

The review must be of the following:

Wagner operas - obviously
Richard Strauss
Either Don Giovanni or The Magic Flute (due to their connections to Wagner)

I am especially interested in productions from smaller or lesser reviewed opera houses. Very interested in those in Eastern Europe, South America,  Africa, the Middle East, Japan and parts of the world where Wagner productions get little if any, coverage in the English speaking world. Also very interested in "semi professional" productions)

Reviews of  Wagner books, DVD and CD would also be more than happily  received. Alternatively, if you have a blog and would like a link to a relevant review simply let me know.

If anyone is interested please contact us using the contact box to the right of any page on the site - or via twitter.
