Richard Wagner had no inhibitions about always hitting up people around him and using their money to pay for himself. His unscrupulousness in leaving his creditors out in the cold is reminiscent of Wotan, the father of the gods, who also does not know how he will ever pay for the castle he has ordered.


Dr. Frank Jaeger, a lawyer specializing in insolvency law and treasurer of the Richard Wagner Association in Munich, converts the sums that Wagner borrowed, spent or demanded into today's purchasing power in an entertaining lecture.
