Wagner Societies To Get Their Tickets Back?

As readers maybe aware, it has long been the tradition for Wagner societies around the world to receive an allocation of Bayreuth tickets each year. These could then be distributed to the societies members outside of the the usual methods. However, in 2012 Bayreuth told the societies that they could no longer provide them with these tickets. This was in no small part due to a Federal investigation into how tickets were allocated each year.

But things maybe changing. It seems that Bayreuth will be holding a meeting in November where they will once again look at providing tickets to the Societies. But why now? One wonders if the possibility of an impending change in the German political landscape might have something to do with it.
