The 2005 Bayreuth Festival Opens

The annual Bayreuth Festival opened today with a performance of Tristan und Isolde. The unusual new production (see pictures below) was conceived by Swiss director Christoph Marthaler, with sets and costumes by Anna Viebrock. The Bayreuth Orchestra was under the direction of Eiji Oue. Here are some scenes from this production.
