Samuel Finzi and Pegah Ferydoni slip into the role of Richard and Cosima Wagner

For our event movie “The Wagner File” (Director: Ralf Pleger), actor Samuel Finzi will slip into the role of the most serious of all composers, Richard Wagner, accompanied by Pegah Ferydoni as the conspiratorial wife Cosima Wagner. For four days, they revive the fascinating story of this extravagant couple in the spectacular setting of the Leipzig Opera House. In addition to these high-quality drama sequences, the film will explore the visionary work and controversial character of Wagner through expert interviews and animations. This project will certainly cause a sensation during the Wagner jubilee in 2013.
