Opera Magazine digs the dirt on the Bayreuth ticket flap

Journalist Robert Turnbull has been researching Bayreuth, the Bayreuth Ticket Office, the Richard Wagner Verband International and Wagner Societies for nearly a year.

Turnbull’s lengthy, detailed article with all of his findings was just published in the August 2012 issue of the magazine¬†Opera.

Below is a download PDF attachment of the complete article from Opera.

Wagadmin notes that the statistic quoted for the number of members in the Wagner Society of Northern California is not correct. But otherwise the characterization of the escalation of the dues assessed by the Richard Wagner Verband International is accurate. The WSNC was not listed in Verband yearbook 2011 but was listed in the “print it yourself” Verband yearbook ¬†2012. You can search for the title “Austerity hits Richard Wagner Verband International” in the Blog entries to locate the download file for the 2012 Richard Wagner Verband International Yearbook.
