  • Welcome to the Wagner Society of New York

    The Wagner Society of New York is the largest in North America. Established in 1977, we are celebrating our 43rd anniversary this year! Please visit this website often, for information on upcoming events -- many of which are offered for free or at discounted rates to members -- excerpts from our bi-monthly publication Wagner Notes, group sales, the opportunity to apply for Bayreuth Festival tickets, and to find our extensive catalogue of Wagner-related books (with member discounts), and links to many other Wagner organizations and institutions.

    In Memoriam

    The Wagner Society of New York sadly announces the passing of Harry Louis Wagner, Jr., (July 22, 1932 - Sept. 21, 2020), who died peacefully at home at the age of 88. Born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx, he was a devotee of the Upper West Side and Riverside Park. He was a graduate of Fordham Preparatory School and Columbia University (BA, 1955). Harry joined the Wagner Society of New York as a charter member in 1978. A distinguished editor of educational books, he was the only editor of the Wagner Society of New York’s publication Wagner Notes since its inception in 1979. He was a lover of literature, drama, and Wagner; he had an amazing memory for literature and an apt quote for any occasion. He is survived by his wife Nathalie, two children (Hank and Tove), and two grandchildren (Chrystal and Taz). We have dedicated our October issue of Wagner Notes to Harry, with fond memories and deepest gratitude for his many contributions to our Society.

    Noting the Met's recent Wagner Week, we share a photo of Harry and Nathalie Wagner (President, WSNY) 
    at the opening night gala of Die Walküre, on September 22, 1986.
