Stephen Fry has been a lifelong fan of the music of Richard Wagner – the world’s most controversial composer. But Stephen is also Jewish and, as he is acutely aware, the intensity of his enthusiasm for the composer was matched – or even surpassed – by that of Hitler.
In this film Stephen makes a journey to explore his fascination for Wagner and confront his troubled legacy. Can he disentangle the music he loves from its poisonous links with Hitler?
We have the refreshments ready – you just have to sit back, relax, and immerse yourself! Tickets are sold at the door; $11 for the movie, pre-movie lecture with Andreas Mitisek and the refreshments- mimosas and coffee! Free parking is available behind the venue.
