Between 25thJuly and 1st August, Radio Romania Music and Radio Romania Culture will broadcast seven live performances from the Bayreuth (Richard Wagner) Festival, one of the most important opera festivals in the world and a reference point for all Wagner music lovers.

The series of live broadcasts starts on 25th July with the performance of Tristan and Isolde in a production - performed for the first time in 2012 - conducted by Christian Thielmann and directed by Katharina Wagner (Richard Wagner's great-granddaughter) and.

The following Wagnerian evenings include the The Ring of the Nibelung tetralogy having at the conductor's desk, this year as last year, Kiril Petrenko who is currently the General Music director of the Bavarian State Opera in Munich and the one who will take over the Berlin Philharmonic - considered by many one of the best orchestras in the world - starting in 2018, when Simon Rattle's term of office comes to an end.

You can listen to Lohengrin, conducted by French Alain Altinoglu, on 26th July, and on 31st July, to The Flying Dutchman conducted by Axel Kober, the director of the Opera House in Dusseldorf. The Bayreuth Festival was founded by Richard Wagner himself in 1876, and takes place in "Festspielhaus", the building especially built in order to accommodate the performances of his musical dramas. After Wagner's death, the festival was managed by his direct descendants and is now one of the most important events not only in Germany, but also on the international musical stages.
