I wouldn't normally bother reporting this but I think as the societies themselves seem to be so "low-key"  about it that it might seem, at least to their members, that they are not doing any in response. However, sources tell me this is far from the case.

As already reported, the International Association of Wagner Societies has  responded asking Bayreuth to reconsider the removal of their ticket allocation - see here. It now seems, in a move lead by one North American Society, the societies themselves are responding - both as a group and in certain cases individually - by letter, directly to the Bayreuth Board of Directors
