Just in: Bayreuth shrinks its summermain
There is a new production of Flying Dutchman with 7 performances, and six nights each of Meistersinger and Tannhäuser revivals.
Andris Nelsons will return for two concerts with the festival orchestra. A third concert will be given by Christian Thielemann.
All very low-key.
Priority ticket sales will be reserved for those who did not claim refunds on last year’s purchases. All other seats will be sold on the website from June 21.
