Bayerische Staatsoper - Wagner vs. Verdi
Trailer for the event *Wagner vs. Verdi* in line with the Munich Opera Festival 2013 of the Bavarian State Opera
On the 28th of June 2013 Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner compete against each other in a musical contest in Munich's city centre. Two immense dolls embody the composers, aided by an armada of brass bands, the musicians of the Bavarian State Orchestra and of course the people of Munich.
The concept of this spectacle was conceived by the Catalan theatre group La Fura dels Baus and the Munich based composer Moritz Eggert.
The spectators have to decide: Brain or Heart? Richard Wagner or Giuseppe Verdi? Two musical parades start from different places in the city to the location of the contest on the Max-Joseph-Platz in front of the Bavarian State Opera.
