  • Well, I suppose Professor Doctor Katharina Wagner, Order of Merit, has to be remembered for something. It sure won’t be for the quality of her productions.

  • she s doing an excellent job as festival intendant and her Tristan staging was amazing. every single person in the summer is very happy with her. hopefully she and Maestro Thielemann will continue.

      • “Every single person is happy with her”. As if! The Festival has really gone to sh*t with her in charge and the garbage productions that have become standard there.

  • “Kinder, schafft Neues!”

    What about an air-conditioned Festspielhaus? That would really make every single person happy, including Placido.
