So far, Bayreuth has not released any pictures from the new production of Der fliegende Holländer by Jan Philipp Gloger which will open the 2012 Bayreuth Festival on July 25. The picture above appeared on Facebook. Whether or not it is an authentic photograph of the upcoming production, I am not sure. If it is, you are looking at a spectacular stage picture featuring a burning vessel designed by Christof Hetzer. While we wait for official press releases from the Green Hill, I hope that the above will whet your appetite for this new Wagner production.
