The Places • Ludwig II of Bavaria followed family precedent in undertaking an extravagant building programme
during his relatively short reign from 1864 to 1886. The castles constructed on his orders included the
romantic Neuschwanstein and the magnificent Schloss Linderhof, with its elaborate formal gardens, grottoes
and fountains. The tour ends with a brief glimpse of the mountainous Southern Tyrol in winter snow.
The Music • Richard Wagner’s innovative and immensely influential musicdramas were largely based on
older German legend, notably on the Nibelungenlied, the basis of his tetralogy The Ring. Ludwig II was
fascinated by Wagner and by his operas, on subjects that had long been dear to him. These include the opera
Lohengrin, which Ludwig first saw in 1861, the beginning of his preoccupation with Wagner, and the earlier
opera Tannhäuser. The music chosen also includes an overture by Heinrich Marschner to an opera based on
the old Bohemian legend of Hans Heiling, son of an Earth Spirit.
