A small treat for Wagner fans
28 October 2001 | by ursulahxSee all my reviews

This won't mean much to people who don't like Wagner or opera in general, but for us fans it's a delightful insight into the staging of various Bayreuth productions, not least Herzog's own Lohengrin. Like Wagner's work itself, the film drags a bit in places but is mostly inspiring and enjoyable.
