Summary "This film is about Wagner family, a family which has ruled the theatre in Bayreuth in southern Germany for the last 140 years. Richard Wagner who built it was one of the most influential composers in the 19th century but his family has survived a mixture of lies, deception, fraud and dangerous political alliances. It's a family - in many ways the Royal family of Germany - at war with itself. "--Pamphlet.
