About Richard Wagner
Richard Wagner was a famous German Romantic era music composer.
Wagner is most famous for his operas, for which he wrote both the music and the words Wagner had his own theater built for his operas, called Bayreuth Festspielhaus. This was primarily built for his production of The Ring of Nibelung, which is a 15 hour long cycle comprised of four operas. Some of Wagner's later work, including Tristan und Isolde, is known for straying away from traditional harmony and conventions. It paved the way for more unconventional works, like those of many 20th century composers.
