Watch Katharina's Meistersinger on your PC

Katharina Wagner's production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg will be aired live on 27 July for those with a broadband connection. The same performance can be viewed on a big screen in Bayreuth.

The price for viewing Meistersinger on the Internet is rather stiff: 49 euro (approximately 77 USD). And as this is written no information in English is available. Information in English is now available.

It is good news that the Bayreuth Festival finally has discovered Internet. Let's hope the Festival's homepage will be redesigned soon, and that more of the vast amount of information about the Festival they possess will be made available for the public.
