English actor and raconteur Stephen Fry explores his passion for history’s most controversial composer. Can he salvage Richard Wagner’s music from its association with Hitler? Set against the backdrop of the annual Bayreuth Festival in Germany, this is a fantastic introduction to the life and legacy of one of music’s most complicated geniuses.


“The questions he posed about art and politics, propaganda, power, myth and belonging and the sheer potency of expensive music were real and profound.” The Sunday Times
