The Wagner Club and the Foundation of Arts and Artists, with the collaboration of the Gran Teatro del Liceu and the support of Katharina Wagner, call for an international painting contest, with a First Prize of €15,000, centered in the theme of the opera by Richard Wagner Lohengrin.
On the occasion of this new production that the Liceu will premiere next season, by Katharina Wagner, great-granddaughter of the composer and director of the Bayreuth Festival, this contest has been organized aiming to bring together various arts: music, theater, and painting. The theme of the contest will be exclusively that of the Lohengrin opera, both the character created by Richard Wagner and any theme related to the Wagnerian drama of the same name.
- The Winner and the Honorable Mentions will be exhibited at the Grand Theater of Liceu(Barcelona), in the spring of 2020, on the occasion of the worldwide inauguration of the new production of Lohengrin, directed by Katharina Wagner, great-granddaughter of the composer.
- The Winner and some Honorable Mentions will be exhibited in the central lobby of the Wahnfried House, the house that Wagner himself built in the city of Bayreuth, during the Wagner Festivals of summer 2020, in which this version will also be released from Lohengrin.
- We have yet to confirm that the same exhibition will be held later in the Central Hall of the Leipzig Opera House, Wagner's hometown, for the same reason.
We are very satisfied that the MEAM can introduce figurative art in the most important redoubt in the world of opera and in the oldest and most prestigious festival in Europe.
