Bayreuth 2014 Cast Lists & General Dress Rehearsal Dates

Somewhat disappointingly, this year’s Bayreuth program is virtually the same as the festival’s 2013 installment. It would have been nice to see Stefan Herheim’s Parsifal given one final revival before the hotly-awaited Jonathan Meese staging that will premiere in 2016. Oh well, we can always hope for next season. Here are the recently-announced general rehearsal dates.
