Zum Inhalt:

This film follows Stephen Fry on a very personal journey to explore his fascination for history's most controversial composer: Richard Wagner. Stephen follows the Wagner trail to Switzerland and Russi, immersing himself in the music and piecing together the larger- than-life story of the composer himself. But can Stephen - who is himself from Jewish descent - salvage the music he loves from its dark association with Hitler and the Nazis?
