Here are a few video clips taken during my stay at Bayreuth for the 2012 Festival
 After the first Act of Tristan und Isolde, August 7, 2012
 The fanfare played before the beginning of Act II of Lohengrin, August 9, 2012.
During the summer of 2012, Bayreuth presented an exhibition called "Silenced Voices" (Verstummte Stimme) remembering the Jewish musicians who were forbidden to perform at the Festspielhaus during the Nazi Era.
 The fanfare played before the beginning of Act I of Tannhäuser, commonly known as the "Hunt" motif. August 8, 2012. A peek at Sebastian Baumgarten's Tannhäuser. There's no curtain, and the cast is seen working as the audience returns. August 8, 2012.
 I'm puzzled and confused by Sebastian Baumgarten's production of Tannhäuser, which takes place in a biogas factory. August 8, 2012. The last performance that I attended in Bayreuth was Parsifal. It was filmed live for ARTE TV. August 11, 2012.


The programs to the four performances that I attended during the 2012 Bayreuth Festival.
Tristan und Isolde - August 7, 2012
Tannhäuser und der Sängerkrieg auf Wartburg - August 8, 2012
Lohengrin - August 9, 2012
Parsifal - August 11, 2012

NOTE: I would like to acknowledge Mr. Martin Donach who accompanied me on this trip to Bayreuth. Without his photographic eye and skill this page would have been impossible to complete, and without his inherent sense of direction I might have ended up somewhere else. A sincere thank-you for all your assistance.
