So now we come to the final episode of our Bayreuth adventure (see Part 1 and Part 2) – more to share with you and some final thoughts.
As I’ve already said, it was more of a pilgrimage than a vacation and, like all good pilgrimages, it had its highs and lows. Artists are not the only ones who suffer for their art. Wagnerites are sometimes asked to do the same.
If you’ve been following the last two episodes where I make frequent mention of the heat in the festspielhaus, you’re probably wondering just how hot it was.
