For Wagner heads like me. And this one has a nice photo of the festspielhaus. They call it the 'most prestigious summer festival', which is fatuous, because there's also Saratoga for dance and Glyndebourne can be great too, although I wonder if there is anything as good by now as the 1973 'Marriage of Figaro' that is on DVD with TeKanawa and Von Stade (as Cherubino). The best Bayreuth production I've seen on DVD is that weird one of The Flying Dutchman with that beautiful voice Lisbeth Balslev as Senta. I don't always like the sound of the big Wagnerian sopranos, they're sometimes too harsh and hard.
