    In 1855 Wagner’s patron Otto Wesendonck and his wife Mathilde built a sumptuous villa overlooking Zurich. Two years later they bought the house next door, Asyl, and invited Wagner and his wife Minna to move in. The Wagners were at one another’s throat. Mathilde was young, beautiful and highly intelligent. What could possibly go wrong?

    Iain Burnside’s innovative form of music theatre illuminates Wagner’s masterly Wesendonck Lieder. The lives of four extraordinary people are interwoven with the words and music they inspired.
