This evening is about the relationship between Franz Liszt, his daughter Cosima and son-in-law Richard Wagner who, in May 2013, will have been born exactly two hundred years ago. Cosima will talk about her life and relationship with the two composers in images that will be projected during the performance.
With the death of her husband, Cosima was also confronted with the mortality of her old father. She is aware that she will soon become the guardian of their legacy in the long life that still lies ahead of her. With music from Wagner's operas.
