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!
