Dresden

Date: 23 May 2018

1838: Richard Wagner begins to write Rienzi.

Seventy years later, a 17-year-old Adolf Hitler witnesses the composer’s extraordinary opera in performance and is dumbstruck.

For Wagner, Rienzi was an act of creation. For Hitler, it set in motion the greatest wave of human destruction we have ever seen. For both, the city of Dresden was their stage.

Justin Fleming’s new play puts passion and power under the microscope through the lens of history and our own horrifying hindsight.

This bAKHOUSE production stars Yalin Ozucelik as Adolf, Jeremy Waters as Richard and Renee Lim as Cosima Wagner. Suzanne Millar directs.
