Society Members at Bayreuth third cycle

It was great to see a strong NSW Society representation at the third cycle: Jane, Dennis, John, John again, Tony, Ermes, Pauline, Minnie, Jill and Carole. It was also nice to catch up with our Victorian friends including Shirley, Nicky and Lesley.

A special thanks to our American society friends. The donation of close to 2,000 Euro to the Friends of Bayreuth from the proceeds of the pre opera talks was fantastic.

GREAT WAGNER VOICES
"They don't make Wagner singers like that anymore" - "There has never since been a Heldentenor to match Lauritz Melchior". Here's the perfect opportunity for listeners to find out for themselves: A stunning array of majestic sopranos (Flagstad, Nilsson...), resplendent tenors (Melchior, Lorenz...), and dark-toned baritones and basses (Hotter, Schorr, Greindl...) guarantee true Wagnerian excitement.

Jonas Kaufmann - WAGNER ARIAS

Kaufmann and Wagner is a classic combination: "For any Wagnerians who've been slumbering, Fafner-like, in their caves during the last few years, here's your wake-up call: Jonas Kaufmann is the tenor we've been waiting for" (Washington Post). A selection of the great Heldentenor scenes and arias coupled with the complete (and rarely recorded by the tenor voice) Wesendonck Lieder. Also includes scenes from Die Walküre, Siegfried , Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Tannhäuser and Lohengrin (extended Grail Scene - Gralserzählung - with its original second verse).
