Antoine Wagner is the great-great-grandson of Richard Wagner as well as the great-great-great-grandson of Franz Liszt. As the son of Eva Wagner, the co-director of the annual Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, he was steeped in family history as a child. Earlier this year, Antoine Wagner produced and starred in the documentary film with director Andy Sommer, Wagner: A Genius in Exile. In this musical road movie, he is shown retracing his great-greatgrandfather's flight to Zurich after he became enmeshed in the Dresden revolutions of 1848 and 1849.
