    That was machine gun fire, right? I didn’t pay attention when this production debuted so can someone fill me in?

    Beginning of the third act. Thomas Mayer (Wotan) has a bit of a wobble, doesn’t he?

    Could it have to do with the fact that the weather in Bayreuth was in the 90s today (33C)?

    Could someone remind me how long their intervals are? I was listening to the Spanish radio stream. We went to intermission and never seemed to come back to Wagner.

    • Lohenfal

      The intermissions are generally an hour long. After all, that’s why Wagner established the Festspiele. He didn’t want to be constrained by the practices of the usual opera house.
