200th Jubilee Bayreuther Festspiele Program is now posted

The program for 2013 Bayreuther Festspiele will include: The Ring in a new production by Frank Castorf, as well as revivals of Lohengrin, Tannhäuser and Der fliegende Holländer

The new Ring Production will be conducted by Kirill Petrenko and stars Wolfgang Koch as Wotan, Catherine Foster as Brünnhilde; Anja Kampe as Sieglinde; Johan Botha as Siegmund and Lance Ryan as Siegfried.

The casts are pretty much the same for Lohengrin, Der fliegende Holländer and in Tannhäuser a major change is that Axel Kober steps in to conduct.

The Society has received inquiries about tickets for Festspiele 2013. The Society plans on applying for tickets under the new scheme and we remain hopeful that we will be awarded tickets. As in the past, we will accept any and all tickets which are invoiced to the Society. There are currently reports in the news as well as a lot of unfounded rumors about the ticket situation. We will report news from reliable sources. Please rest assured, the Wagner Society of Northern California will do its level best to continue the tradition of making Bayreuth tickets available to our members. Any tickets the Society receives will be fairly distributed using the Society’s Bayreuth Priority Procedures.
