This newly restored silent landmark was the first feature-length film to be made about the composer Richard Wagner, featuring Italian composer Giuseppe Becce in the title role, together with Olga Engl and Miriam Horwitz, and produced by Oskar Messter in Berlin in 1913.

This rare screening is presented for the first time at the Barbican with an original piano score, composed and performed by Jean Hasse, which combines extracts from Bach, Bellini, Liszt, Wagner and Hasse herself, among others.
