Erlösung dem Erlöser!

La Cieca has just heard that the acclaimed production of Parsifal by Stefan Herheim will be telecast and filmed for DVD release next summer in Bayreuth.

    I hear that Bayreuth requires such long rehearsal periods, and most star (famous) singers lose so much money by spending so much time rehearsing, so this is why Bayreuth tends to get so few “stars.” The stars are able to make tons more elsewhere. They don’t want to commit to such long rehearsals. Since their careers can be short lived, in a way you can’t blame them trying to make as much as they can as fast as they can, b/c they are like football players. Their career could end suddenly without notice. I was surprised Kaufmann appeared last year. I bet the cast they scrape up for the dvd will be mediocre at best. I wonder why there are no Wagner singers anymore.

      Or no Verdi singers. Or no verismo singers.

      Singers with Wagner roles in their repertoire value being able to add to their resume that they sang at Bayreuth. Even if only once. It’s like getting Ricky’s blessing.
