The international conference “Richard Wagner’s Impact on His World and Ours” is now over, and the conference committee would like to thank all those who attended for their participation, and especially all those who contributed papers, lectures, workshops and concerts to what was a highly successful event.
This site will remain online as an archive of the event. You may now view videos of the keynote lectures, discussion panels, workshops, and concert below.
Apologies for the slightly jerky camera work in a couple of places, and for missing the first couple of minutes of one or two of the sessions. Hopefully nothing too vital is lost. In addition, sound quality is often rather poor, but turning up your computer volume or speakers will help with this.
