The life of Richard Wagner is explored in this BBC documentary that examines the connections between Wagner's own spiritual vision and his art, including coded anti-Semitic references in his music and the techniques he used to mesmerize his audience. Musicians include arguably the world's greatest and most controversial performers: Daniel Barenboim, Roger Norrington, Siegfried Jerusalem, Deborah Polaski and Falk Struckmann with contributions from Wagner experts John Deathridge and Barry Millington, as well as Stephen Hawking and George Steiner. Excerpts from The Ring, Rienzi, The Flying Dutchman, Lohengrin, Tannhäuser, Tristan und Isolde and Parsifal.
