Thought for the Day

Fun with Wagner 😀

(A little rivalry?…)

“Mr. Wagner has beautiful moments, but bad quarters of an hour.” —Gioacchino Antonio Rossini

Parzifal [written by Wagner] is an opera which starts at 5:30 and, when you look at your watch three hours later, it says 5:45.” —Puccini

Butterfly or Boheme [two operas written by Puccini], I can’t tell them apart.” –Wagner

“To me Tristan is and remains a wonder! I shall never be able to understand how I could have written anything like it.” –Wagner

And, finally…

“Wagner’s music is better than it sounds.” —Mark Twain
