Minna Planer’s Biography
Her family moved to Dresden and at the age of fifteen she gave birth to her daughter Natalie, the product of a relationship with Captain Ernst Rudolf von Einsiedel. Throughout her life, Minna said Natalie was her younger sister.
In 1833 the actress Minna Planer met Wagner in Bad Lauchstadt, who months later will be named conductor of the orchestra in Magdeburg. In 1835, Wagner begins to work in the opera The prohibition to love (Das Liebesverbot), which opens in 1836, the year he married her. They move to Königsberg, where she acts and he is a conductor, but the theater goes bankrupt.
Wagner and Minna flee to Dresden. She works as an actress, but Wagner’s jealousy will end her career.
A year later they settle in Riga, but once again urged by the creditors he flees with Minna and his dog Terranova on board a sailboat that sails from the Baltic towards Boulogne Sur Mer, where he meets Giacomo Meyerbeer. In the flight Minna loses her pregnancy and will no longer have children.
Minna must endure the affaires of her husband with other women, the last with Mathilde Wesendonck, which ends up causing a divorce. In a letter to a friend she writes: “Does being a genius entitle you to be a bastard?” (“Hat ein genialer Mann das Recht auch ein Schuft zu sein?”)
She is believed to be addicted to laudanum, which is why she died of an embolism in 1866 in Dresden.
Wagner is in Marseille, does not attend the funeral and in 1870 he marries Cosima Liszt, with whom he was involved since 1865.
