Debut at the Bayreuth Festival

Originally invited for Roland Schwab's new production of "Tristan und Isolde", Cornelius Meister stepped in at short notice to conduct "Der Ring des Nibelungen" for the indisposed Pietari Inkinen.

The General Music Director of the Stuttgart Opera, Cornelius Meister, is currently working on a complete "Ring" himself at his house in Stuttgart. "Das Rheingold" and "Die Walküre" have already had their premieres.

The new production in Bayreuth, directed by Valentin Schwarz, will now celebrate its premiere of "Das Rheingold" on Sunday 31 July, "Die Walküre" on 1 August, "Siegfried" on 3 August and "Götterdämmerung" on 5 August.
