Reopening in 1951, part 1 (Did you know?)


The first Richard-Wagner-Festspiele after the war (1951) had productions of Parsifal, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Der Ring des Nibelungen. The 21 performances were led by two conductors: Hans Knappertsbusch (Parsifal+Ring) and Herbert von Karajan (Meistersinger+Ring).
