Four of the nine cards that arrived during my absence are from Germany.
One of them shows an illustration of the opera Siegfried. Siegfried is an opera by Richard Wagner. It premiered in 1876 in Bayreuth. It is a part of the tetralogy The Ring of the Nibelung. 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.
