The Bayreuth Festival has issued a bulletin on its absent chief.

It says Katharina, 42, is ‘still seriously ill, but on the way to stabilization.’

The statement added: ‘The recovery process will take months.’



  • Leo Doherty says:

    Get well soon. Best wishes.

  • Der Wanderer says:

    It’s a repeat of how they handled Wieland’s early death: Total silence on cause or type of illness. Much much later, it was divulged he’d had lung cancer. Wagners evidently don’t like revealing their specific medical news.

    • Petros Linardos says:

      They’ve been forthcoming about Katharina Wagner’s medical leave. I believe that is the only public matter.
      The rest is none of our business.

  • Gustavo says:

    Is she the only horse in the stable?

  • Tribonian says:

    Very sad news that she’s ill, and good news that she seems to be making a recovery. The details of her health are frankly nobody’s business but her’s and her family and friends.
