Budapest misses out on next year’s Ringmain
Mike Roddy has seen a fine cycle in the Hungarian capital, but hears executive fears that they cannot afford a repeat performance.
‘I am looking for especially German sponsors because it’s part of the German cultural heritage but it’s very difficult to catch them,’ says one of the organisers.
UPDATE: Müpa Budapest has asked us to clarify that it never planned nor announced a complete Ring for 2018. As regards funds, Müpa Budapest CEO Csaba Káel referred to future fundraising opportunities but the Budapest Wagner Days has never financially been in danger.
