'Tannhaeuser' sketch presented to Richard Wagner museum near Dresden

Dresden, Germany (dpa) - The Richard Wagner sites in Graupa near Dresden were presented with an original sketch by the composer on Wednesday on the occasion of the 206th anniversary of his birth.

The document, a page from the opera "Tannhaeuser," had been in the possession of the musicologist Eva Rieger and was handed over in the presence of Dagny Beidler, a descendant of Wagner.
Wagner (1813-83) spent the summer of 1846 in Graupa, composing "Lohengrin" while living in a farmhouse now called "Lohengrinhaus." It now houses a small exhibition on the opera.
The hunting lodge at Graupa has a Wagner Museum and concert hall.
