Win a double pass to Stephen Fry’s Wagner And Me

15 February, 2011 by IF

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?

Shot on location in Germany, Switzerland and Russia, Wagner & Me includes unique behind-thescenes access to the Bayreuth Festival, the annual extravaganza of Wagner's music held in the composer's own purpose built theatre.
