The Wagner Trail: "Richard - Leipzig born and bred"

Wagner is the only one of all these great composers who was actually born in Leipzig. This is where he went to school and where his decision to become a composer matured. It was in Leipzig that Wagner had his formative musical education, experiences of the theatre and concerts and where his own early compositions were performed. There were ups and downs in Wagner’s relationship to his home city, but by the end of his life he had been reconciled with it. Now it is up to Leipzig to show that it is worthy of him. You too can follow in Richard Wagner’s own footsteps as you walk in the central city or drive around the surrounding area.
