Looking at the names
If you take a look at the names rolling over the screen on the production of Meistersinger by Wolfgang Wagner on DVD, you will probably recognize a couple. Chances are good that you have seen the name Katharina Wagner before. She was assistant (with Thomas Weiler) to her father Wolfgang Wagner. Another assistant in the production team is Marko Kleiber, son of Carlos Kleiber. Carlos Kleiber had a short but intense career at Bayreuth (he conducted Tristan 1974-76 - some of the performances has been released on LP/CD).
