Katy Hamilton talking on 'Wagner, Paris, and the Origins of the Flying Dutchman'

All events are held on Sundays at the Edinburgh Society of Musicians, 3 Belford Road, EH4 3BL (by Dean Bridge) and generally run from 6.30 to 8.30pm

Admission £7 members, £10 non-members, students free on production of student ID.  Student membership of the Society is also free.

Dr Katy Hamilton is described as ‘one of the UK’s most sought-after speakers on music at various venues including the Southbank Centre, the BBC Proms and Radio 3’.

In her talk Katy will explore how Wagner got from a French-language opera, set in Scotland, to a German-language piece about Norway? From the travails of establishing himself in Paris, to a fraught sea-crossing from Riga to London, she will explore the complex origins of this work and the German and Scottish influences that lie behind this dramatic masterpiece.

New members always welcome.  Pitch up and meet members or just join.
