Market Screening ‘Global Wagner - From Bayreuth to the World’

Presented by Naxos Audiovisual Division

Wagner is more than just music. Wagner is a social phenomenon, a question of belief, and the Bayreuth Festival is the world‘s most important mecca for the cult of Wagner. Global WAGNER is a cheeky documentary dedicated solely to the world’s fascination with the man, the music, and to the question: How did, to this day, such a massive hype and such a cult develop all over the world around this highly controversial artist? There are more than 125 Wagner Societies worldwide – from Los Angeles to New York, from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv, from Tokyo to Riga, from Venice to Bayreuth we’ll meet Wagnerians like Katharina Wagner, Christian Thielemann, Alex Ross, Barrie Kosky, Valery Gergiev, Piotr Beczala, Anja Harteros, Kevin Maynor, Jonathan Livny, Koichi Suzuki, and many others.
