The Bayreuth Festival 2009 Cast

The Bayreuth Festival 2009 cast has now been published. Most notable changes are that Christian Franz returns to Bayreuth to sing Siegfried (as he did 2001-2004); the Rosalie-Siegfried Wolfgang Schmidt kehrt zurück to sing both Mimes, Ain Anger makes his Bayreuth debut as Fafner, Alan Titus will sing Hans Sachs in Katharina Wagners controversial production. Sadly Michael Volle's Munich plans collides with the Bayreuth schedule. Let us hope he will return.

I am curious about Christian Franz's Siegfried. A strange come back...
The same about A. Titus; can he really pull Sachs at zenith?
