Wagner - A Genius in Exile, DVD DVD

Wagner - A Genius in Exile DVD

Directed by Andy Sommer



Documentary following Richard Wagner's great, great-grandson, 30-year-old New York photographer Antoine Wagner, as he travels to Switzerland to trace the celebrated composer's time there.

Spending several years in Switzerland, in the first instance as a political exile, the composer enjoyed a prolific period, writing 'Die Meistersinger', 'Tristan und Isolde' and the 'Wesendonck-Lieder', as well as beginning work on 'Der Ring des Nibelungen'.

In order to build up a picture of his forefather and gain a perspective of the man, Antoine Wagner sets out to visit the places where he lived, and talks to a local gathering of musicologists, historians and musicians.

Contributors include Dagny Beidler, Katja Fleischer, Laurenz Lütteken, Albert Lutz and Eva Rieger.
