Wagner's grand and lyric Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg transports us into a waking and sleeping dream of its characters. Wagner's opera embodies his vision that creativity occurs in the depths of the unconscious and is accessible to us in our dreamlife and through interpretation. Steven Goldberg, MD, and Jeanne Harasemovitch, LCSW, will each present their ideas on Wagner's conception of dreaming, its relation to Freud and contemporary theorists, and the non-representational and its alliance with music, poetry, and art.
