It was THE thing to do an new year's eve :-) And i will listen to Ariadne, maybe i can even catch up on day with it, need to check out tour ;-)And i can see you starting your 10 year begging process for Bayreuth :-p you wagnerian you!
Here's the link to AaN's performance schedule:http://www.wno.org.uk/ariadne/venues-and-performancesAnd here's the performance schedule for Die Bathttp://www.wno.org.uk/fledermaus/venues-and-performancesAs for starting my 10 year Bayreuth process....I'm still not sure. I've been surprised by how much I've taken to Wagner, but I get the feeling Bayreuth wouldn't be for me. I love the operas (most of them anyway), and they exude a magical hold over me when they are performed by people who know what they are doing, but from what I've seen from documentaries and read in various articles / blogs I would probably feel like a fish out of water. I enjoy my music, and all that it brings to me - but I can't pay homage to it as many people seem to do at Bayreuth. I understand why people are drawn to the place, but I've never felt the need to have the perfect experience of anything. I like my experiences to be living, not enshrined. I hope this makes sense...And then there are the seats. How hard are they? I'd be looking to take a duvet, not a pillow.
