A complete Ring Cycle will be performed during the 2015 Richard Wagner Verband International Congress in Dessau (Germany).
The Dessau Götterdämmerung has already been given and reviewed in the press.
Attending this Ring is easy in terms of getting tickets, and as far as price is concerned, it’s a bargain. Also, there are two activities that should interest art lovers.
Below is the info for obtaining tickets. Please note that reservation is open to all members of Wagner Societies–be they members of the International Association or not.
Dates: May 13–17 (R: May 13; W: May 14; S: May 15; G: May 17)
2. Unless you want to practice your German, choose “English version”
3. Click “International Richard Wagner Congresses” in Dessau
5. Click “Kongressprogramm” for the program
6. Click “Anmeldeformular” to download the 2 Forms A (reservations) and B (hotels) and fill them in. Form B is optional
– Do mention the name of the WS to which you belong.
– And don’t forget to indicate English (even if you know some German), because we must have a correct number of non-German speakers to plan for the guides fluent in English
– There is a Congress registration fee to be paid in order to attend
– Note that there are 2 excursions (Wörlitz and Bauhaus) worth considering
7. Send Form A (and B) to the address indicated at the bottom
See you there!
Best to you all,
Jacques Bouffier
This note comes from Jacques Bouffier who is a Vice-President of the Richard Wagner Verband International and a member of the Wagner Society of Southern California. Jacques is also able to serve as our proxy delegate at the Congress in the event we are unable to send a representative. Just recently the Board of the Verband changed the rules for voting and now RWVI member Societies who cannot send a delegate to the Congress (Usually the distant North and South American and Australian and New Zealand Societies) are permitted to appoint a proxy.  Thank you Jacques!
