Berlin Wagner Gruppe
Founded in 2017, Berlin Wagner Gruppe presents full performances of Wagner operas in concert and semi-staged format.
We operate by collective collaboration - performers share both costs and profits. It provides singers with the opportunity to study, rehearse, and perform a full Wagner role with a complete cast, and it gives our audience the unique opportunity to hear Wagner (and Wagnerians!) up close and personal.
