Richard Wagner’s oeuvre is impressive. Even during his lifetime it was clear that his visions for music theatre were ground-breaking and unique.

2013 sees Wagner’s 200th birthday – an important occasion for Arthaus Musik to recognize and honour him. The catalogue contains three outstanding opera productions which will now be released together in this exclusive Wagner Collection DVD Box.
