So treibt Bayreuth sich die Gespenster aus

Die „Meistersinger“ gelingen, Horst Seehofer sonnt sich im Premierenglanz, und sogar die Haussanierung liegt im Plan. So gut wie heute ging es dem Familienunternehmen Wagner lange nicht

The L.A Times

‘Romeo and Juliet’ at the Dorothy Chandler pavilion.

Los Angeles Opera has done it again. Six years ago the company introduced the most promising young tenor in quite some time, Rolando Villazón, and paired him with the exquisite soprano Anna Netrebko as the dazzling new dream couple in a new production of Gounod’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
