A theatre created for a single composer: the Bayreuth Festival Theatre. With an auditorium in which his music unfolds like in no other theatre in the world. With no grandeur, reduced to the essential: to experience his works as a celebration. Connoisseurs, friends, skeptics – they all come to the green hill every summer to explore his legacy, away from the great centres of culture. Since 1876, when he first performed his “Ring des Nibelungen” as a cycle. Richard Wagner: visionary, utopian – his heritage remains alive here. At the most exciting musical theatre festival in the world.
