Bayreuther Festspiele Der fliegende Holländer
The exclusive Bayreuth festival is transmitting live operas to movie theaters all over Germany.
A new exhibition looks at how the Nazis used opera as a powerful tool of propaganda, especially during the Nuremberg Rallies. Hitler was personally involved in the staging of some epic Wagner productions.
The renovation cost 30 million euros - but the Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth now shines brighter than ever. The original baroque theater has opened its doors again on Thursday, 12 April.
No venue in the world conveys the atmosphere and acoustics of a Baroque court opera house quite as authentically as this one: The Margravial Opera House has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 2012.
