Global Wagner film screening, a documentary dedicated to the worldwide following of composer Richard Wagner and his legacy across the Bayreuth Festival.

Global Wagner – From Bayreuth to the World is not a biography of Richard Wagner, nor is it a musicological analysis of his work. This is a documentary dedicated solely to the world’s fascination with the man, and an exploration of the question as to how such massive hype and world-wide cult following developed around this highly controversial artist. The film is a revealing feature-length study of life with Wagner’s legacy from one Bayreuth Festival to the next, and we travel the world to meet devoted Wagnerians and those most intimately involved in commenting on and producing his work today. Directed by Axel Brüggemann, in German and English, featuring Katharina Wagner, Christian Thielemann, Alex Ross, Valery Gergiev, Plácido Domingo, Piotr Beczała, Barrie Kosky, and Anja Harteros. Presented by the Wagner Society of New York.

Date and Time: November 8, 2023 at 6:30 PM

Location: Dolby Screening Room; 1350 6th Ave, New York, NY 10019
