Wagner in Switzerland

“Wagner in Switzerland” is shot at unique historical sites and explores Richard Wagner’s life at Tribschen: Concerts at the composer’s villa are complemented by documentary elements offer insight into Wagner’s life at Tribschen. It features soloists of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra performing his “Siegfried Idyll” at the very place where he premiered it on the staircase in 1870 as a birthday present to his wife Cosima.

A special treat will be mezzo-soprano Elisabeth Kulman and pianist Eduard Kutrowatz interpreting the “Wesendonck Songs” in the original version for female voice and piano in the villa’s salon.
