Max Lorenz, Wagner's Mastersinger - Hitler's Siegfried The life of singer Max Lorenz

About

The outstanding singer Max Lorenz was Hitler's favourite tenor. But he was married to a Jewess and he was also homosexual.

The biography of this outstanding Wagner singer is closely bound up with the story of Haus Wahnfried in Bayreuth. Tracing his career involves contemplating a highly volatile period in recent history from the perspective of an ambivalent artistic personality.

With Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, René Kollo, Lieselott Tietjen, Waldemar Kmentt, Winifred Wagner and many more.
