Richard Wagner in Dresden

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Richard Wagner, a host of events exploring the life of the great composer are taking place in Dresden this year. As part of the Richard Wagner anniversary year, cultural institutes in the capital of Saxony are hosting numerous events under the banner 'Dresden. where Wagner evolved into WAGNER'.

The exhibition at Dresden City Museum, on from 27 April to 25 August 2013, is especially worth seeing. It presents sites in the city associated with Wagner's life and work, and sheds light on the people who most influenced him as a person and as a creative individual.
