The Bayreuth Debate
Acclaimed German composer Richard Wagner helmed the Bayreuth Opera House built in 1872 and the ongoing annual Festival of Wagnerian operas at Bayreuth. Fast forward to the 21st century: while some of us have experienced an opera in an opera house, have such spaces lost their relevance?
Join six members from the Richard Wagner Association as they launch into a spirited debate for and against the motion. Each member is a highly-qualified professional who has attended a performance at Bayreuth.
Each will carry a ‘symbol’ identifying them as a character from Wagner’s operas; you might just catch Tristan, Isolde, Fafner, Woglinde, Venus and Brunnhilde making their appearances.
