    “The Flying Dutchman” – interpretations compared

    Every seven years, the Dutchman is allowed ashore to seek a woman to redeem him from his curse. Richard Wagner created a fascinating opera drama from the legend of the flying Dutchman, which is not only available in several versions, but also in numerous, highly diverse interpretations. BR-KLASSIK takes a musical look at legendary and outstanding recordings – from Daniel Barenboim to Bruno Weil.

    Discourse Bayreuth 2020: Björn Gottstein in conversation with András Schiff and Martina Gedeck

    Here it is all about art – political spirit and attitude. In the approximately 50-minute discourse by Björn Gottstein with pianist András Schiff and actress Martina Gedeck, these topics are the focus of attention: Does an artist have to take a political stand? Can art develop freely? Do artists play a special role – and do they have more freedom?
