Bayreuth's order form has arrived
The order form for the Bayreuth Festival 2010 arrived at my post last Saturday. As announced already, the festival opens on 25 July 2010 with a new production of Lohengrin staged by Hans Neuenfels and conducted by Andris Nelsons, and ends 28 August. The other programmes are Der Ring des Niebelungen, Parsifal and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and staffs are the same as this year. Casts are TBA. Prices seem to be raised due to the pay-rise for their backstage workers. The highest one is €280 in A1 category, the lowest €15 in G4. The deadline is 16 October 2009 and your order has to reach by this date at the latest. Don't miss it.
