Kleve is a town in the Lower Rhine region of northwestern Germany,
near the dutch border and the river Rhine.
From the 11th century onwards, was capital of a county
and later a duchy – inhabited for at least 1000 years.
Today, a district in the german state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Just over 50,000 inhabitants now.
As usual inspired by “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
A sculpture in a square in the german city of Kleve.
It is inspired by Richard Wagner’s opera Lohengrin.
Briefly deals with accusations against a young princess
there is an heir to the throne – about the murder of a younger brother.
Where a stranger comes to defend her in the dispute,
that cannot be called a legal trial – more about faith and superstition.
Something like that could easily take three acts.
Lohengrin is the most frequently performed of Wagner’s operas.
