My Life as a Dream
The life of Ludwig II of Bavaria unravels as Richard Wagner take advantage of his experience of life as a folkloric dream, and at the same, time politicians vie for control over him and his kingdom.
Ludwig II of Bavaria, a fantasist, a dreamer, a creative mind, is destroyed by an array of people who seek to use him for their own ends. He is buffeted between a range of people, from his male lovers, to his extended family, to his mentor Richard Wagner and even his Prussian cousins and their arch supporter Bismarck. Out of these machinations rose the most fantastical buildings and creative endeavours.
