WANTED RICHARD WAGNER

Lohengrin House, Graupa

In 1846 Richard Wagner and his wife Minna spended the summer at the "Schäfersches Gut" in the village of Graupa, nearby Dresden. During their stay he wrote the composition-sketch for his opera Lohengrin. So this farmers house later on was called Lohengrin House. In our days it is a museum, with two historic Wagner rooms, a mediathek and a recidency appartment, where I lived and worked during this half year. Listing to Wagner music (and nothing else), drawing (without listening anything), reading, writing and sculpturing. I passed there a beautiful time, far enough away from town and diversion, going for long walks in this great nature around the village. It was calm there, I worked hard and I enjoyed it a lot.
