Sir Peter Jonas makes his Bayreuth stage debut

July 24, 2017 by norman lebrecht


The former director of English National Opera and Bavarian State Opera will take the stage at Bayreuth later today to deliver a homage to Wieland Wagner in the centennial year of his birth.

This is not just the first time Peter takes a solo bow the Bayreuth stage.

It may also be the first time Wieland has been mentioned on stage since his brother Wolfgang erased all trace of his work after his death in 1966.
