Description: Do you cringe when your opera-loving friends start raving about the latest production of Tristan? Does your mate accuse you of having a Tannhauser complex? If you've longed to fathom the mysteries of Wagner's ever-increasing popularity, or if you just want to better understand and enjoy the performances you're attending, you'll find this delightful book indispensable.

William Berger is the most helpful guide one could hope to find for navigating the strange and beautiful world of the most controversial artist who ever lived. He tells you all you need to know -- from story lines to historical background and from when to visit the rest room to how to sound smart during intermission. Funny, informative, and always a pleasure to read, Wagner Without Fear proves that the art of Wagner can be accessible to everyone.

Includes:
-- The strange life of Richard Wagner -- German patriot (and exile), friend (and enemy) of Liszt and Nietzsche
-- Essential opera lore and "lobby talk"
-- A scene-by-scene analysis of each opera
-- Recommended recordings, films, and soundtracks
