Fake Bayreuth Tickets In Circulation.

Not the first time you might say but these are a little different, because they are being given away free to local residents in Bayreuth. It seems that a number of Bayreuth residents have awoken to find the tickets in their mailboxes, along with a fictitious letter from the festival management.

However, the tickets are easily spotted: although they resemble official tickets closely, they are printed on very cheap paper and contain the addition of an QR Code which when scanned includes, among other things, the following message:

"This ticket is counterfeit. Sorry. However, Richard Wagner's anti-Semitism is real"

How very droll.
