There are close, mutually stimulating links between the evolution of Richard Wagner's festival idea and the creation of his masterpiece "Der Ring des Nibelungen". Wagner's convictions about the need for fundamental reform in the theatre led him to side with the revolutionaries of 1848/1849. Richard Wagner first outlined his idea for a festival on 14 September 1850; it was never to leave him...

Logo Europa in Weimar 2008 / © Klassik Stiftung WeimarVisions of a writer - Victor Hugo as a painter
This exhibition at Weimar’s Schiller Museum presents one of France’s outstanding 19th-century writers as an equally important painter of his era. On display are drawings and watercolours depicting motifs of a fantastic or grotesque nature as well as architectural scenes and landscapes inspired by the artist’s extensive travels, offering insights into an oeuvre that is - at least in Germany - largely unknown.
