Performances of Tannhäuser 2012 - an incomplete listing

Written By The Wagnerian on Sunday, 8 January 2012 | 2:45:00 am

Another entry in our "Incomplete series", this time the Wagnerian's incomplete listing of Tannhäuser performances 2012. As normal, there are performances missing from this list and I have excluded any where the house concerned has not made a full cast list easily available. As this information does become available I will try to add these.  Equally, if you have any information on any that I have missed please let me know. 

As always: All details are open to change so please consult the official websites of each house. The Wagnerian, takes no responsibility for any such changes or inaccuracies herein
