Humperdinck and Wagner: Metric States, Symmetries, and Systems

Abstract

Building upon recent geometric models of metric states by Richard Cohn and Scott Murphy, this article proposes a complementary model that expands the metric states that can be considered, relates states by symmetries , and creates systems of such states. Application of the model to Engelbert Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel and Richard Wagner's Parsifal reveals metric-dramatic strategies common to the two operas: certain metric symmetries parallel certain dramatic ones.
