Corona pandemic: Wagner festival in Bayreuth cancelled

The Bayreuth Festival has fallen victim to the Corona Pandemic. Shortly before the start of the “Ring” rehearsals, which were to start on April 1st, the responsible committees have now announced the cancellation. Besides the new “Ring” production, which has now been postponed to 2022, the performances with Axel Kober are also cancelled. The GMD of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein would not only have conducted the “Tannhäuser” at the festival, but also some performances of “Lohengrin”.
