Welcome to the Wagner Society in NSW




Members of the Wagner Society NSW are lovers of Wagner's music and operas. 

Under normal circumstances, Society events are held most months at 2.00pm usually on a Sunday and normally at the Goethe Institut, 90 Ocean Street, Woollahra. These include presentations by Wagner singers, conductors and directors of Wagner operas; recitals by Wagner singers and artists supported by the Society; seminars on topics relating to Wagner's music and current productions of Wagner operas; celebration of Wagner's birthday; and a Christmas concert and party. In addition, DVDs of Wagner operas or related areas are often shown before the meeting (but not before recitals or concerts).

During Covid times, zoom talks have been the norm but our first actual concert in a year was held on 7 March 2021, and this year we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Wagner Society in NSW.

Members of the public are most welcome.
