Gregor Seyffert's „Wagner_reloaded” - Apocalyptica meets Wagner

Exclusive advance show for WGT visitors
(600 tickets available at venue. Arriving promptly increases the chance of admission.)

"For an event to possess greatness, two things must come together: greatness of spirit in those who accomplish it, and greatness of spirit in those who experience it." (Richard Wagner)

Concept/Production/Choreography: Gregor Seyffert
with: Apocalyptica (FIN), Gregor Seyffert & Company, soloists of the Leipzig ballet company „Theater Titanick” among others.

A magical universe of legendary figures and acoustic worlds that symbolises – with the visual resources of circus, dance and media technology – Wagner's pioneering role and the limitless nature of his work. “A furious total artwork: imaginative, extravagant theatre for all the senses in a specially created panoramic universe; better than cinema and to be experienced up close!”

In addition to the exclusive advance show there are further attractive special offers for WGT visitors under the following link:
