Carl Dahlhaus’s voluminous writings on Wagner from the 1960s though the 1980s provide the most important attempt to understand the form of the music dramas since Alfred Lorenz’s studies of the 1920s and 1930s. The chapter offers an analysis and critique of Dahlhaus’s approach and proposes an alternative analytical procedure to be followed in the present book.

Keywords:   action, analysis, art of transition, Carl Dahlhaus, dialogue, form, leitmotif, Alfred Lorenz, monologue, music drama, operatic dramaturgy, passion, poetic-musical period, poetics, solita forma
