I should like to welcome you to our Website of the Richard Wagner Association International.
The RWVI all our member societies around the world under one roof.

The purpose of our association is to awaken your interest in Richard Wagner's work and to deepen your understanding of it. 

Our mission is the promotion of international cooperation and the preservation of the Bayreuth Festival, along with fostering communications among our members around the world.

Particularly close to our hearts is the support of the Bayreuth Scholarship Foundation, which was established by Richard Wagner himself in 1882.  This Foundation enables young artists to participate in the Festival with an attractive cultural programme. 

I hope you enjoy studying our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions.
