Germany: Bayreuth Festival

On Tuesday I got four postcards: two from Indonesia and two from Germany. One of the cards from Germany broaches the issue of the Bayreuth Festival.

The Bayreuth Festival is a Music and Theatre Festival taking place every year in Bayreuth. Otto Brückwald built between 1872 and 1875 the Bayreuth Festspielhaus designed by Richard Wagner only for the Bayreuth Festival. The first festival began in 1876. The directors of the Bayreuth Festival are Eva Wagner-Pasquier and Katharina Wagner. They are great-grandchildren of Richard Wagner.


Stamp:

and a special postmark showing the Bayreuth Festspielhaus


Thank You very much Natalie!
