Germany: The Flying Dutchman

Four of the nine cards that arrived during my absence are from Germany.

One of them shows an illustration of the opera The Flying Dutchman. The Flying Dutchman is an opera by Richard Wagner. It premiered in 1843 in Dresden. It is one of Wagner's operas that is played at the Bayreuth Festival.
I got this card a few weeks ago in a cover.


Stamp:
Lily of the Valley (issued 06-05-2010)
with a special postmark from the Bayreuth Festival
It shows an illustration of Richard Wagner's opera Tristan and Isolde. It premiered in 1865 in Munich and is one of the operas that is played at the Bayreuth Festival.


Thank You very much Amelie for sending me the card in an envelope!
