Actor and writer Stephen Fry explores his passion for the world‘s most controversial composer – Richard Wagner. But Stephen is Jewish and lost family members in the Holocaust, so can he salvage the music he loves from its dark association with anti-semitism and the Nazis? The film includes unique behind-the-scenes access to the Bayreuth Festival, the annual extravaganza of Wagner‘s music held in the composer‘s own purpose built theatre. Featuring a soundtrack of Wagner‘s extraordinary music, this is a fantastic introduction to one of the most important composers ever.
