When Richard Wagner died on 13th February 1883 in Venice in the arms of his second wife Cosima, not only the life of one of the most genius men in musical history ended at this point. Also a biography between beguilement, betrayal, escape, adultery, anti-Semitism and a strange relationship with Ludwig II., the excentrically King of Bavaria. Who was Richard Wagner? In which racketeerings was he involved? Is there an evidence of Wagner’s double-minded doings?
