Fascination Wagner

„Fascination Wagner“ presents highlights of the operas of Richard Wagner in combination with specially produced music videos in a new dimension. The story of the each opera is thus comprehensively and directly accessible to the audience.

The phenomenon Richard Wagner and his operas have always fascinated fans of classical music all over the world. The opulent orchestral sound, the great - infinite - melodies and the heroic singing grant the success of these masterpieces.

The vision of Wagner himself went far beyond his music, he wanted to create not less than a “Gesamtkunstwerk” (comprehensive artwork), which captures all the senses of the audience at the same time. The cinematic implementation of the story through video projections in addition to live music gives Wagner’s works also in concert a new dimension.

Andreas Schager is the new star in the operatic Wagner universe, his extraordinary voice with the “golden tone” conveys the power and the richness of music, his natural charisma is gaining the sympathy of listeners all over the world and leaving the fascination of Wagner’s overall art work entirely directly.

The multi-award-winning opera and film director Selcuk Cara thematizes and analyzes Wotan's relationship with his children and grandchildren cinematically and scenically creating an aesthetic state of suspense that never flattens the central strand of ring tetralogy and makes the dramatic potential of the drama perceptible.
