The Wagner-Clan. A family history

PLOT

When Richard Wagner (Justus von Dohnanyi) 1883 died in Venice, his wife Cosima (Iris Berben) wants to follow him to death. But her beloved daughter Isolde (Petra Schmidt-Schaller) reminds her of the importance of keeping Wagner´s legacy alive and with that Cosima finds her way back to life. 

She intrigues to become director of the Festival Bayreuth and never ever wants someone else, but a member of the Wagner family to head the Festival. As the only heir Wagners son Siegfried (Lars Eidinger), who prefers art to music, is forced by his mother to be the next director of the Festival.

Meanwhile Chamberlain, a dedicated friend to the Wagner family, has to marry the second Wagner daughter Eva (Eva Löbau), because the prefered Isolde weds a young and ambitious conductor. While Eva´s marriage stays childless, Isolde soon gives birth to the long-awaited heir for the Wagner legacy and with that an unrelenting struggle for power between the two sisters and the encouraged brother begins...
