Wagner is more than just music. Wagner is a social phenomenon, a question of belief, and the Bayreuth Festival is the world‘s most important mecca for the cult of Wagner. There are more biographies about Richard Wagner than about Jesus. But Global WAGNER is not a biographical film about Richard Wagner. It is also not a musicological analysis of his work. It is a cheeky documentary dedicated solely to the world’s fascination with the man, and to the pursuit of an answer to the question: How did, to this day, such a massive hype and such a cult following develop all over the world around this highly controversial artist for whom there only seem to be either lovers or haters?

There are more than 125 Wagner Societies worldwide – from Los Angeles to New York, from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv, from Tokyo to Riga, from Venice to Bayreuth we’ll meet Wagnerians like Katharina Wagner, Christian Thielemann, Alex Ross, Barrie Kosky, Yuval Sharon, Valery Gergiev, Placido Domingo, Piotr Beczala, Anja Harteros, Catherine Foster, Kevin Maynor, Jonathan Livny, Koichi Suzuki, Sheikh Minister Zaki Nusseibeh, Maris Gailis and many others...
