Best Wishes to Katharina Wagner for a good recovery
RWVI President Rainer Fineske sends best wishes for a good recovery to Katharina Wagner, Director of the Bayreuth Festival
Dear Chairs and Presidents of Wagner Societies worldwide
Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are all aware from the reports in the international media of the unexpected and serious illness of  Katharina Wagner, Director of the Bayreuth Festival.

The serious condition of her health has hit us all completely unexpectedly and our thoughts are with her.

The Board of the Richard Wagner Verband International wishes her all the best and the strength she needs on her long road to recovery.

We all want her personally to reopen the Festival with us in 2021 after the Corona Pandemic (which incidentally has not affected her).


Rainer Fineske
