Wagner and Me by Patrick McGrady (UK, 2012, 89 min.). English actor and raconteur Stephen Fry explores his passion for history’s most controversial composer, Richard Wagner. Can he salvage Wagner’s music from its association with Hitler? Animated by Fry’s trademark wit and intelligence and set against the backdrop of Germany’s annual Bayreuth Festival, this is a provocative introduction to the life and legacy of one of music’s most complicated geniuses. “Absorbing and elegantly produced . . . infectious and genuinely serious” (Sydney Morning Herald). In English and German with English subtitles.
