Film director Oliver Berben has confirmed that he is making a 110-minute film on the Wagner family for ZDF. Shooting starts next month. It’s a big deal in Germany.
Cosima is to be played by Iris Berben, making it even more of a family saga.
A request to film at the Festpielhaus in Bayreuth has been coolly declined.
I wonder who he gets to play the English son-in-law, Houston Stewart Chamberpot.
