Wagner Reading Wagner: Lohengrin. Watch Now

Attentive readers may recall a year or so ago, Jamie McGregor's re-enactment of Wagner reading the text  of  the Flying Dutchman. Well, since then he has performed further re-enactments - including one at Staging Operatic Anniversaries at the Oxford Brookes University in the UK in 2013. Unfortunately, he has had some difficulty in reproducing some of these electronically. However, we are pleased to let you know that his performance of  Lohengrin is now available. Included below, without the music he so kindly includes at his website is part one.

To view the full performance, please click the link below. And we highly recommend that you do, for this will be one of the few opportunities to get a feel for how many of Wagner's friends and peers would have first experienced his work. Highly recommended.
