* A sixteen-year-old RichardWagner attended a performance of Beethoven's ''Fidelio'' in April 1829 starring the actress and singer Wilhelmine Schröder-Devrient (1804-1860). He was so impressed that he sent a note to her afterwards saying that because of her he would now devote his life to creating opera. As it turned out, Schröder-Devrient would play leading parts in the first performances of ''Rienzi'' (1842), ''The Flying Dutchman'' (1843) and ''Tannhäuser'' (1845). In the latter two cases Wagner got to conduct her himself.
