Inside Wagner's HeadThe many truths and myths surrounding Richard Wagner are explored in this one-man show in which Olivier award winning actor Simon Callow plays the German composer. Specially commissioned for the Deloitte Ignite festival, curated by Stephen Fry this year, the play attempts to show what Wagner was actually like, and what it was like to be around him. Wagner was a mass of contradictions: a sublime visionary and a petty anti-Semite, a political radical but dependent on dukes and princes, irritating yet charismatic to the point of commanding absolute devotion. Inside Wagner's Head, staged in the Linbury Studio Theatre of the Royal Opera House, explores the life and legacy of Wagner in the composer's bicentenary year.
