The Board of Directors of the Bayreuth Festival held their long awaited meeting tonight regarding a possible successor to Wolfgang Wagner (88) as head of the Bayreuth Festival.
According to Der Spiegel:
Wolfgang Wagner was not present at his meeting, but his lawyer stated that he had no plans to retire.
Several Board members publicly expressed doubts of the suitability of the K Wagner/Thielemann/Ruzicka constellation.
No decision regarding Wolfgang Wagner´s successor was made
All members of the Wagner family interested in leading the Festival were invited to present their concepts to the Board of Directors at a later meeting.
So it seems this docu-soap may continue for some time...
