The BAFTA-winning actor speaks to BBC Radio 3 about Wagner's complex character.
Following the hugely successful one-man show Being Shakespeare, Olivier Award-winning actor Simon Callow presents an exploration of the life and legacy of Richard Wagner in his bicentenary year.
Wagner's life was fiercely passionate in every aspect: political exile, tempestuous love affairs, provocative writings and an astonishing operatic output that revolutionized the stage. This very special one-man show has been specially commissioned for Deloitte Ignite, this year curated by Stephen Fry.
