Derek Hughes challenges the theory of a conspiracy of silence surrounding anti-Semitism in the Wagner circle

• Justin Mueller on Hans-Jürgen Syberberg’s classic 1982 film Parsifal
• Chris Walton on the other Minna Wagner, an actress frequently confused with Wagner’s wife
• Roger Allen’s new translation of Wagner’s important essay ‘On the Destiny of Opera’
• Tribute to Norman Bailey by Niall Hoskin
• Christopher Wintle on Wotan’s offspring

plus reviews of: Stefan Herheim‘s Ring from Berlin, Richard Jones‘s Valkyrie from ENO, Tristan und Isolde in Mannheim, Die Meistersinger at the Met, the Wesendonck Lieder in London and The View from the Villa in Musselburgh; CDs featuring Lise Davidsen, Elīna Garanča and Anna Netrebko; a new study by Anno Mungen of Wieland Wagner‘s wartime productions, David Vernon‘s Disturbing the Universe: Wagner‘s Musikdrama and a revised edition of Paul Dawson-Bowling‘s Wagner: the Complete Experience and its Meaning to Us
