The relationship between a composer and his benefactor can be complicated. But none seemingly more complicated than that of Wagner and King Ludwig II. Why would a king show up disguised on a composer’s doorstep? Did King Ludwig’s obsession extend beyond just Wagner’s music? Lies and heartache riddle this story against the backdrop of the creation of Wagner’s thrilling Ring Cycle.
