The Bayreuth music director has been making upbeat comments about his festival partner, Katharina Wagner:

Sie ist noch in Behandlung, aber auf dem Weg der Besserung. Sie hat keine schwere Krankheit, es war nur ein Ausrufezeichen. Sie hatte wohl Glück.

‘She is still being treated, but is on the way to getting better. She has no serious illness, it was just a wakeup call. She may have got lucky.’


  • Leporello says:

    A wakeup call – can we hope? Time to end the dynastic festival management farce.

  • Rob says:

    Thielemann’s Liebestod ?

  • Olassus says:

    Nice move by Christian Thielemann.

  • John Rook says:

    Glad she’s on the way back. Get well soon.
