Tannhäuser or Il Trovatore? Rienzi or Aida? Fish or fowl? The decision between Wagner and Verdi divides opera lovers into cultural enemies. Giuseppe Verdi, the Southern European, is famous for his anthropocentric work – lovely, melodic, tragic and true-to-life. The German Richard Wagner is known and admired for his heroic legends and myths – tremendous and expressive.

The 6-part documentary series 'Wagner vs Verdi' presents different and very personal perspectives of work and impact of both giants of music theatre, using interviews with famous interpreters of both composers and live recordings from some of the world’s major opera houses, such as the Bayreuth Festival, Arena di Verona or Gran Teatre del Liceu.
