Richard 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. There are more biographies about Richard Wagner than about Jesus. But Global Wagner – From Bayreuth to the World is not a biographical film about Richard Wagner. It’s not a musicological analysis of his work. It is a cheeky documentary dedicated solely to the world’s fascination with the man.
