PHOENIX FROM THE ASHES - FÜSSEN
Dear friends of the Wagner Festival Wels!
We are pleased to finally announce that our efforts to continue our festival have paid off. Thus we have found a new home in "Ludwigs Festspielhaus" at Füssen (BRD), for which the "Musikfestspiele Königswinkel" was founded especially. In the magnificent theatre building of the most modern kind, surrounded by a dreamlike scenery, "Tristan and Isolde" will be staged on two evenings (30.9. and 3.10.2020). Here, we will revive our successful production from Wels 2015, under the musical direction of Lothar Zagrosek and the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra.
The guarantors for a successful continuation of our festival are opera greats such as: Peter Seiffert and Lioba Braun, in the title roles, as well as Matti Salminen, Hermine May, Michael Kupfer-Radecky and Franz Gürtelschmied.
The scenic realisation of the opera will be performed by Daniel Hackenberg, based on Herbert Adler's inspiring, true-to-life “original”, in the imaginative original equipment by Dietmar Solt.
In 2020, the Königswinkel Music Festival will once again offer the opportunity to experience the internationally successful production of the opera "Tristan und Isolde" by the Wagner Festival Wels. We hope for a success of this cooperation and look to the future with confidence.
