The box include all the operas that are being played at the Bayreuth Festival, that is: Das Rheingold Die Walküre Siegfried Götterdämmerung Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg Tristan und Isolde Parsifal Der fliegende Holländer Tannhäuser Lohengrin Most of these recording will be second or fifth choice for Wagnerians collecting recordings.
