Master Classes 2023

Master Class in Singing

Motivated by the great success of the master classes of John Lundgren, Camilla Nylund, Elena Pankratova, Kammersänger Stephen Gould, Siegfried Jerusalem, Petra Lang, Markus Eiche, Kammersänger Johan Botha and Prof. Michelle Breedt, it is a lasting concern of the Bayreuth Festival to also offer a master class for young singers within the framework of the Bayreuth Festival 2023.

The lecturer and director of the 2023 master class is Mr. Markus Eiche, who can be seen as Kurwenal in Roland Schwab’s production of “Tristan und Isolde” under the musical direction of Markus Poschner and as Wolfram von Eschenbach in Tobias Kratzer’s production of “Tannhäuser” under the musical direction of Nathalie Stutzmann.

The singing master class is aimed at music students at the end of their training and is scheduled to take place on 02, 04 and 05 August 2023, ending on 06 August with a public final concert in the hall of Villa Wahnfried at 11.00 am.

Applications with a complete curriculum vitae, passport photo and three music samples (preferably by Richard Wagner) are expected as attachments, exclusively by e-mail to
