On the death of Jürgen Flimm!

Jürgen Flimm, great theater artist, director and artistic director passed away on February 4, 2023. At the Bayreuth Festival, his Ring production of 2000-2004 remains vividly remembered. The Hamburg theater director knew how to provoke his audience without disturbing them and, sticking as closely as possible to the text, to “compose” almost every scene theatrically. Jürgen Flimm was artistic director for almost five decades and wrote theater history with many of his productions. As a university teacher and professor, he inspired and shaped subsequent generations. We will honor Jürgen Flimm’s memory!
