Richard Wagner's Prose Works, Vol. 6 free pdf Excerpt from Richard Wagner's Prose Works, Vol. 6 In the spring of 1872 Richard Wagner had left the calm and quietude of Tribschen for what might at first appear the equally pronounced seclusion of Bayreuth- but, just as the last year of his retirement on the lake of Lucerne had been broken by the constant necessity of journeys in furtherance of his Festspiel scheme, so he was allowed but little peace and rest after the first few months of his removal to the Franconian town. In Volume V. we were given the fruits of that brief respite, in the shape of the essay on "Actors and Singers" and the various minor articles concluding with the "Letter to an Actor" of November 1872. Then another round of business-visits to various German towns and cities had to be undertaken, lasting till the end of April 1873, saving for temporary returns to Bayreuth- in one of which was written the "Glance at the German Operatic stage of To-day" (Vol V.), which may itself be regarded as a sort of diary of that tour of inspection. Meanwhile the building of the Festival-house was proceeding apace, so that on August 2, 1873, the topmost beam could be set in place with fitting ceremony. Yet the master's troubles were by no means ended. Subscriptions to the building-fund were flagging terribly, and in the autumn of that year it seemed that the Bayreuth enterprise would after all collapse for lack of financial support. In October, accordingly, a meeting of the Patronat-Verein was assembled at Bayreuth, attended by Friedrich Nietzsche among others. As outcome of this convocation, an Appeal drawn up by Dr A. Stem, of Dresden, was issued to four thousand book and music sellers: result - a few thalers from two or three students! Had it not been for Wagner's personally pledging his credit for the work, the Bayreuth Buhnenfestspielhaus must there and then have been abandoned. But at the beginning of the year 1874 King Ludwig came forward to its rescue, and plans for the performances could be entertained once more, though it proved necessary to postpone their date until 1876 instead of 1875, as previously contemplated. In the spring of 1874 the "Villa Wahnfried" was at last ready for habitation, and the master was able to move into it from his lodgings in the Dammallee.
