With young stage director Patrice Chéreau and musical modernist Pierre Boulez, Wolfgang Wagner had put together a dream team to find a new, modern yet timeless approach to his grandfather's work. Filmed at great expense under the direction of Brian Large, this production has been a best-selling DVD title on Philips. Since its disappearance from the marketplace it has commanded high black market prices and there is a serious demand among dealers for a re-release.
