10:00 am to 2:30 pm
Queensland Multicultural Centre
Dr Peter Bassett and Professor Stephen Emmerson will be looking at Wagner’s changing perceptions of Hans Sachs between the earliest sketches for a drama in 1845 and the finished masterpiece of 1867. The first session, on Wagner’s evolving ideas about Sachs, will be between 10:30 am and 12:00 noon, and a light buffet lunch will follow between 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm. The afternoon session, between 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm will focus on the musical depiction of the wise and compassionate cobbler-poet we now know. Because it will be a double program with lunch, the entrance charges will be slightly higher than usual at $15 for members, $20 for guests and $5 for full-time students.
