Stefan Herheim has started Bayreuth rehearsals for Parsifal

Stefan Herheim has just started rehearsals for his Parsifal production in Bayreuth. Villa Wahnfried and the Festival House will obviously play an important part of the sets. Will Herheim stage Parsifal as a Strindberg drama with Richard Wagner in one of the main roles? Will we see Cosima wandering around in Bayreuth? Will Adolf Hitler be on the stage? How will the Erlösung theme fit into a stage with recognizable buildings like the Festspielhaus? I have no idea, but I will be there to see the third performance and must say that I am very excited. Will you be there?
