Marek Janowski conducts a Frank Castorf production of Der Ring des Nibelungen, plus Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Daytrips to Bamberg and Nürnberg.
There are many Rings, but only one Bayreuth. It is the ultimate Wagner experience, to hear the Maestro’s music, in his city, in his opera house.
The Bayreuth Festival has it all: pomp and pageantry, fanfare and feuding, musical epiphanies, production-related outrages, political clashes, foot-stamping approval and the occasional chorus of boos. It is evocative, exhilarating, allconsuming and unlike any other musical experience anywhere. You have likely heard tell of the bottom breaking wooden benches, of the lack of air-conditioning, of the hour-long intervals that make for seven-hour marathons at the Festspielhaus… but unless you have experienced it, you have not heard this music played live with such sublime perfection.
