In Wagner Year 2013, what could seem more crucial and obvious than providing artistic hopefuls with the necessary support, so often missing? Whatever one may think of the much debated problem of Wagner singing today, there can be little doubt that promising voices in this field require sensitivity and attention, as well as the necessary time, to develop a well-founded and mature interpretation of Wagner.

Wagnerian soprano turned Baldwin Wallace Conservatory professor, Jane Eaglen, knows this only too well. It is the reason behind the Baldwin Wallace University Wagner Intensive Training program which finished its 2nd year this past summer.

Now it is announced that two Singing Master Classes will be making their debut during the Bayreuther Festspiele during Wagner Jubilee Year 2013.

Supported and accompanied by répétiteurs with many years of experience, two acknowledged celebrities in their field, currently much sought-after and celebrated as Wagner singers on all the world’s renowned stages and with experience of singing at Bayreuth, will pass on their knowledge at first hand. As the instructors for one master class, Bayreuth will welcome Petra Lang and Adrian Baianu for one class and directing the second class will be Markus Eiche. Articulation, intonation and singing techniques will be discussed and coached in individual and group lessons, while time will also be devoted to approaches to developing a character’s dramatic portrayal.
