At the festival, people scramble for money. But, as always, also about power. And also about the future of the boss Katharina Wagner.
This year could be a very significant one for them Bayreuth Festival become. For the first time in the history of the festival, VR technology will be used there in the summer for Richard Wagner’s “Parsifal”. That’s exciting enough, but only one thing. The other thing: This year it will probably also be decided whether Katharina Wagner will continue her contract as director of the festival, which currently runs until 2025. And there may also be a crunch in financing.
