German composer Richard Wagner.

Richard Wagner

(1813 - 1883)

Having already staged The Flying Dutchman and Tannhäuser, court authorities refused to produce Richard Wagner’s Lohengrin, owing to his advocacy for a national theater. The composer to whom Nietzsche dedicated his first book fled Germany for his involvement in the Dresden uprising of 1849 and missed Lohengrin’s debut at Weimar, conducted by his friend Franz Liszt.
