Where To Listen To This Years Bayreuth Festival Online: 2018

Written By The Wagnerian on Saturday, 21 July 2018 | 11:01:00 pm


It's nearly that time; festival "madness" from Bayreuth. If you are unsure where or when to listen, to the individual, productions we have done our best to provide you with the times and links below. This year, it appears that BR Klassik and Bartok will, apart from Lohengrin, be broadcasting on different days, with BR Klassik broadcasting the recorded live broadcast after Bartok - in many cases. So, for example, both will broadcast the premiere of Lohengrin on the 25th July, BR's next broadcast will be the 30th July while Bartok's next broadcast will be Parsifal on the 26th July. With that in mind, we have listed both stations and provided links. We hope this is not too confusing. As always, we suggest you click the link in advance and make sure it works for you. A pop-up should appear and whatever is streaming at the time you click should be audible. If you have any difficulties, please get in touch via mail or Twitter and we will do our best to help. On a similar note if you spot an error here, please do let us know.

Times noted are in CEST, Dates are in European, not, American format. Please adjust to your local time if needed. Click the performance to launch the player

Date: 31/07/18. Time: 15:57 Work: Die Walküre
(In a first for Bayreuth - and not without some controversy - Walkure will be the only part of the Ring to be performed this year. One does wonder if this is because last years tickets were available for the entire cycle right up to opening night and beyond?


Yes. We know. The wrong production, but we have shown the Castorf so many times now. Plus the Kupfer is just so archetypal to its core.
