First pic of Bayreuth’s male Brünnhildemain
This is the curtain call at the end of last night’s Götterdämmerung, the closing show of the season.
Catherine Foster hurt her foot at the end of the first act and her role was bravely played out on stage for the next two acts by assistant director Andreas Rosar, decked out in gold lamé.

Next year, the role of Brünnhilde will be advertised as being open to men and women.
