Your Committee is working hard on assembling another set of interesting events for you for our 2017/18 season. Our second trip for 2017, to Berlin in mid-November,  is already firmly planned.  Watch this space for news of what else is coming up for 2017/18.

Meanwhile members are scattering far and wide in pursuit of performances of Wagner operas -  to Wiesbaden, Prague, Budapest and, of course Bayreuth.

 

RWVI Website:

The Richard Wagner Verband International has created  an excellent new website - www.richard-wagner.org  - in English, French and German. It's worth a look.

 

Wagner Operas on the Internet:

The are a number of websites (particularly www.youtube.com ) where one can watch complete operas on demand and free of charge on the internet.

Of particular interest is the website www.theoperaplatform.eu/en which is is currently (until 31/10/2017) showing the Dutch National Opera production of Die Walküre, with Thomas J Mayer, Christopher Ventris, Catherine Foster  and Catherine Naglestad.  Also available are the Wiener Staatsoper productions of Parsifal and Götterdämmerung as well as Der Fliegende Holländer from the Finnish National Opera.
