  • Welcome to the Wagner Society of New York

    Established in 1977, we are celebrating our 41st anniversary this year!

    The Wagner Society of New York is the largest in North America.


    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.

    If you are not yet a member, join now to receive these and many other Society benefits -- most especially, the unique opportunity to meet and mingle with celebrities from the world of opera, and a diverse group of like-minded people from around the world who admire and follow the music of Richard Wagner.
