200th anniversary of the birth of Richard Wagner:
Richard Wagner – his passions and burdens

13/03/2013 - 26/05/2013 - Leipzig Museum of City History

To mark the Wagner bicentenary, the Museum of City History will be presenting a wide-ranging exhibition on Richard Wagner, the story of his life and relationships, his influence and the impact he had. The displays will highlight the important personal and creative stages in the life of Wagner, a creative egotist who absorbed everything around him to fuel his artistic purpose, be it revolutionary politics, the favours of the King or the love of women. The museum tells the story of Wagner’s relationship with Leipzig, and the lasting impression made on him by the Saxon environment he grew up in. It follows his personal and working life through to Bayreuth, the town in which he finally realised his vision of a new kind of music drama, and synonymous with the cult and music of Wagner.
