About this book
A collision of family drama and political controversy in this first thorough look at Germany's most famous musical family. As well as revealing much about the family through extensive interviews and archive material, it is also a look at a fascinating period of European history, charting the rise, fall and resurrection of Germany.
For over a century the Wagners have presided over the Bayreuth Festival. Drawing on extensive interviews with members of the family and on both archive and recent material, this work presents a portrait of the Wagners and their circle; a story which presents a mirror of Germany's rise, fall and resurrection.
