Venezia, 11 febbraio 1883, ultimi tre giorni di vita di Wagner. Verdi è appena giunto in laguna per eseguire in segretezza la nuova ouverture dell'Otello. Wagner lo viene a sapere e gli chiede di assistere alla prova... da questo spunto fittizio prende l'avvio un racconto che immagina la nascita di una amicizia segreta tra i due massimi operisti dell'Ottocento, che nella realtà non si incontrarono mai.La vivace figura della contessa Clarina, l'erudito e compassato Tenca, il viscido giornalista Scafati, l'enigmatica Cosima, la passionale Stolz, l'umile Giuseppina e un giovane poeta esaltato di nome Gabriele sono i comprimari di questa storia che, attingendo più volte dall'epistolario di Verdi e dagli scritti di Wagner, vuole essere il pretesto per ragionare di musica, d'arte, d'amore e morte a Venezia, alternando momenti divertenti e riflessioni più serie.Originariamente pubblicato a puntate sul blog "marcopizziparalipomena" in occasione del bicentenario della nascita dei due compositori, Verdi contro Wagner viene qui raccolto in una versione riveduta e corretta.
