In the Footsteps of Wagner

Follow in the footsteps of the great master of opera, Richard Wagner, and enjoy performances of his major operatic works in Germany, France and Switzerland.

Beginning in Switzerland, visit Villa Wessendonck, where Wagner worked on two of the Ring operas, and in Lucerne attend a private concert at the villa where Wagner once lived.

Then, travel to Paris, where Wagner famously oversaw the production of Tannhäuser at Palais Garnier, and enjoy a private behind-the-scenes look at the theatre as well as a performance of Die Walküre. At the Musee D’Orsay, enjoy a private tour of works influenced by Wagner.

In Germany, visit Leipzig, the city where Wagner was born and educated, and Dresden, where Wagner staged three of his middle period operas including The Flying Dutchman. Travel to Bayreuth for a guided tour of the theatre, the site of the annual festival dedicated to Wagner’s works and of which Wagner supervised the construction in his final years.

End the tour in Berlin with performances of The Flying Dutchman, Tristan und Isolde and Parsifal by the Deutsche Oper.
