2007 Bayreuther Festspiele


The 2007 Bayreuther Festspiele is here, and everyone’s blogging about it! It opened yesterday with Die Meistersinger, directed by 29-year old Katharina Wagner, great-grand-daughter of Richard Wagner.

Here’s rest of the programme for the opening week:
26 Jul: Tannhäuser
27 Jul: Das Rheingold
28 Jul: Die Walküre
30 Jul: Siegfried
01 Aug: Götterdämmerung
02 Aug: Parsifal

I’m now listening to Tannhäuser on my earphones while blogging, and the first few minutes already had me captivated. I’m probably going to finish listening to the whole work =) Shall blog about it if there’s energy after watching it. 🙂 The Ring cycle’s on for the next few nights. Wheeee~
