Abstract [en]

Wagner’s romantic operas were introduced at The Royal Swedish Opera in the 1870s. Despite some initial critical resistance they were appreciated by the audience and im-mediately established themselves in the repertoire. The attitude towards the later music dramas, though, was more skeptical, as is apparent from Adolf Lindgren’s influential book Om Wagnerismen [“On Wagnerism”] (1881). When Die Meistersinger, as the first of the later Wagner works, eventually was performed in 1887 the critics and audience were divided into two opposing camps, with the negative side gaining the upper hand. Die Meistersinger disappeared from the repertoire and was not played again until 1899/1900. Die Walküre performance in 1895, however, met with an enthusiastic audience reception, and the critics were more balanced in their views even though many of them still were negative towards some aspects of the work.This paper will consider the critical reception of the remaining music dramas in Stock-holm, from Das Rheingold in 1901 to Parsifal in 1917. After the first Swedish performan-ce of Siegfried in 1905, Wagnerian critic and composer Wilhelm Peterson-Berger (1867-1942) wrote that Wagner “nowadays has become classic”. Therefore, he continued, his usual Wagner sermon was no longer required. Thus, in less than 20 years the Swedish reception of Wagner’s music dramas developed from a strongly negative view to a com-plete acceptance. The works were given a firm and central place in the repertoire, provi-ding a foundation for the emergence of a large number of internationally renowned Swedish Wagner singers in the 20th century, from Nanny Larsén-Todsen to Nina Stemme.
