    Might I ask how you were able to get affordable tickets? I've looked into it a bit, and not only are tickets for the Bayreuther Festspiele expensive but there is usually a long waiting list....

    Hi Siegmund,
    The only way I know how to obtain FestSpiele tickets is to join the Wagner Society of New York City. The address is P.O. Box 230949 Ansonia Station, NYC 10023-0949. Membership costs $ 45 per year. In August you place your name on the waiting list for tickets for the following season. In other words, next month you could enter the queue for 2007 tickets. The 2005 package of five operas cost $ 1,100. Their e-mail address: wagnerring@aol.com and web url is: www.wagnersocietyny.org
    The odds are pretty good that you could get a package for 2007.
    Georg
