Bayreuth confirms its 2020 plansmain
There is to be a new Ring cycle, conducted by the Finn, Pietari Inkinen, directed by Valentin Schwarz.
Axel Kober, replacing the absentee Valery Gergiev, will conduct a revived Tannhäuser, as well as two Lohengrins.
These plans have been previously leaked.
Meistersinger is also to be revived, no conductor yet named.
Marek Janowski has been chosen to conduct the Beethoven anniversary performance of the 9th symphony.
That’s it, folks.
Don’t get too excited.
