THE YOUNG FRIENDS OF BAYREUTH
In the festival season 2008, the Society of Friends of Bayreuth, the largest and most important underwriter of the Bayreuth Festival, launched an initiative to give young Wagnerians a unique opportunity not only to support the festival financially for a reasonable annual fee, but also to gain interesting insights into the festival events, the activities behind the scenes, as well as the artistic work: The Young Friends of Bayreuth want to help to introduce a younger audience to the Bayreuth Festival.
On the agenda of the Young Friends are joint opera and rehearsal visits at the Bayreuth Festival and in other opera houses, and workshops and discussions to bring them closer to the world of Richard Wagner.
Anyone under the age of 35 can apply for a youth membership. With a reduced annual fee of 100 € and the waiver of the initial admission fee, we are taking into consideration the limited financial ability of young people.
The contributions and donations of Young Friends of Bayreuth are pledged to the Bayreuth Festival as part of the support given by the Friends of Bayreuth.
You are also cordially welcomed to join the Young Friends of Bayreuth!
