Big boos for Siegfried at BayreuthNews
On a hot night when the bars ran out of ice, the black-tie audience vented its frustrations on the third part of Wagner’s Ring with a return to collective cat-calling.
Austrian director Valentin Schwarz continued his Netflix-aimed soap opera by portraying the dragon that Siegfried kills as the ailing head of a mafia family.
Andreas Schager as Siegfried was warmly received, as was Tomasz Konieczny as Wotan, back faster from injury than any summer footballer.
