Richard Wagner Festival 2013: Ceremony to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Richard Wagner

Wed. 22 May, 11 am - at the Leipzig Opera

Leipzig, the city of Wagner, will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth with a major ceremony. Wagner fans from all over the world and federal politicians alike are expected to be in attendance. At the same time, the ceremony will represent the building of a bridge between the two Wagnerian cities of Leipzig and Bayreuth, which have expressed their joint responsibility for Richard Wagner's works in the form of a collaboration leading to the performance of his three early works. The musical climax of the ceremony will be the performance of the "Ring ohne Worte" ("Ring without Words") by the Gewandhaus Orchestra, conducted by its musical director Ulf Schirmer.
