The Pocket Opera Company (Nürnberg) Germany’s oldest independent and mobile music theater has been streaming past opera productions on YouTube for the last couple of months as a ways to keep the art of opera going during the Corona crises. Our online „POC Festival“ will reach its crowning finale this Saturday July 25 with a unique rarity surely to be of interest to the distinguished members of any Wagner society: Not purely by chance coinciding with the original opening day of this year’s cancelled Bayreuth Festival we will stream a complete video recording of Wagner’s Singspiel fragment „Männerlist größer als Frauenlist oder Die glückliche Bärenfamilie“ („Men are more cunning than women or The happy bear family“, 1837/38) that we completed and premiered in 2013. The stream will be broadcasted on YouTube on July 25 at 8:15pm (CET) and can be accessed via this link: . A synopsis of the opera’s story and the English abstract of an essay about the work/production will be available on our website ( before Saturday. The DVD of the complete video recording can be purchased for 20 Euro (plus 5 Euro for international shipping) and comes with an extensive program bill including the libretto.

We would be happy if you could share this information with your members.

Kind regards,


Florian Reichart
