How Bayreuth cured a Nazi depressionmain
Wonderful clip from Karl Ritter’s Stukas (1941) just posted on www.wagneropera.net. A sick Luftwaffe pilot is cured of his depression by listening to Götterdämmerung at Bayreuth. The music revives him to climb back into the cockpit and bomb civilians in England.
You see where all this Wagner leads?
