Wagner Dream

Millennium Centre, Cardiff
Cardiff Bay, Cardiff, Wales
United Kingdom


Wagner is dying in Venice. He will leave behind some of Western art’s greatest works. But he hasn’t finished his life’s work; he is tormented by his need to write a music drama about the Buddha.

Welsh National Opera is proud to present the UK staged première of the late Jonathan Harvey’s extraordinary opera. Wagner Dream is part biography, part fantasy that will transport you into another realm.

Supported by members of the Getty Family as part of British Firsts and by a lead gift from The Kobler Trust.

Original production: commission and co-production: De Nederlandse Opera, Amsterdam, Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg, Holland Festival and IRCAM -Centre Pompidou, Paris

Also 7th June and 12th June Birmingham Hippodrome.
