  • Kind of think that the money could have gone to better use…discounted/free tickets for youngsters to see Wagner either in Leipzig or at Bayreuth itself.

  • Congratulations to him, his Wagner and Strauss are superb – long may it continue and I hope we shall see so much more of him in this country to enrich our musical lives.
