Wagner's Dream (2012)
Critic Reviews for Wagner's Dream
You don't need to be a fan of Wagner, or even opera, to find this a fascinating glimpse of a dauntingly complex human endeavor.
The result is an engrossing chronicle of creative people under pressure, a movie about the madness of opera for which no knowledge of opera is required for full enjoyment.
It's a bit startling that director Susan Fröemke would choose to make a documentary about the set.
The finished "Ring" cycle, a combination of "myth, science and legend" made to order as Wagner imagined it, was unique to every viewer's eye. The making of it will be spellbinding to everyone.
[A] 16-hour, four-opera masterwork about the creation and destruction of the world, a work that Wagner considered unstageable in his time.
