Thielemann’s Bayreuth contract expires next weekmain
There is much speculation in German media today as to whether Christian Thielemann will remain music director of the Bayreuth Festival after his contract expires at the end of this month.
Bayreuth say they want him to stay. Thielemann says nothing.
‘The Bayreuth Festival intends to sign a new contract with Christian Thielemann,’a festival spokesman said yesterday. ‘His duties and title are still being clarified.’
