For Whom The Bell Tolls: Baumgarten's Tannhäuser It Seems

Sebastian Baumgarten's "affectionately" nick named "biomass Tannhäuser" has been axed. It seems that not even Bayreuth could put up with the jokes anymore and this year will be the last time that Baumgarten's "controversial" production of Tannhauser will see the light of day.

Its future slots will be filled instead with Hans Neuenfels  Lohengrin.  Seems people might be upset by a biomass factory but are just big softies for pink mice. All together now: Aww!
