TAFF Festival Night at the Goldbergsee

Music by Richard Wagner in the enchanting idyll of the Goldbergsee. Over 40 musicians from the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra will perform. The soloists are  top-class: Klaus Florian Vogt and Catherine Foster. The evening will be hosted by the well-known Franconian cabaret artist, singer and actor Martin Rassau:

This is the TAFF Festival Night at the Goldbergsee.
The date: Tuesday, 9 August 2022, 8:00 p.m.

For the second time, this extraordinary event will take place, with which TAFF, the youngest supporters’ association of the Bayreuth Festival, revived a tradition last year: The Festival Night at the Goldbergsee. Legendary concerts with Bayreuth orchestra musicians already took place there in the 1980s.

With a new concept, supported by Festival Director Prof. Katharina Wagner, the first TAFF Festival Night at the Goldbergsee could be realised in the Corona Year 2021 – also thanks to the friendly support of the Marktschorgast municipality.

The lake, enchantingly situated in Marktschorgast, about 20 kilometres from the Bayreuth Festival Theatre, and its surroundings form a dreamlike backdrop for a wonderful evening of music, which is also perfect for Wagner newcomers. Of course, long-time Wagner fans will also get their money’s worth, thanks to the Bayreuth Festival performers on stage.

The program includes a “Best of Wagner” such as the overture from “Tannhäuser”, the Grail narrative from “Lohengrin” or Isolde’s Liebestod. Let yourself be inspired!
