Verdi Vs Wagner

Verdi and Wagner were born in the same year – 1813 – and last year was their bicentennial.  Although the two never met they didn’t much like each other's work.  For Wagner, Verdi’s work was too populist: for Verdi, Wagner’s work often strayed off path which is a nice way to say way too long and a bit bombastic.  Here, animator Pablo Morales de los Ríos imagines that the two did meet – and they sort each other out through five Acts (or should that be rounds?).
