Advance planning is part of any opera company’s agenda. So here is the 2016 cast listing for next years Festspiele.

There are still some openings, notably Isolde and also Kundry for the new production by Uwe Eric Laufenberg with setsby  Gisbert Jaekel and costumes by Jessica Karge. Andris Nelsons will conduct the new Parsifal production starring Klaus Florian Vogt.. Rumors are flying fast and furiously as severa; well known sopranos are flying in and out of Bayreuth at the moment.

NN = no one is under contract yet.
