There are a multitude of books written concerning Wagner and his life and his style. They can all be found in the library. My suggestion is to check your school library or public library and also tr to get your hands on some recordings, be it video and audio, or just audio, of both composer's works. They are both wonderful composers, I tend to like Wagner more though. Good luck!

My suggestion would be to observe some of the operas by each composer & site obvious differences (Wagner to me tends to be much heavier & dramatic).
You could site specific performances & whom directors chose to sing certain roles, because usually they chose certain performers because they are familiar with what type of voice (mezzo, coloratura, etc.) should be used in those operas...hope this helps?!?!
