The Wagner Journal is a periodical that seeks to examine Wagner and his works from a variety of perspectives – musicological, historical, literary, philosophical and political – and to illuminate the unique appeal of this endlessly fascinating composer. The journal aims to bring the questions surrounding the theory and practice of staging and performing Wagner to a wider audience, in that way furthering our understanding of his operas as theatre.

The Wagner Journal appears three times a year (March, July and November) and is published both in print form and online. Individual articles are also available for downloading. The journal is published and distributed independently.
