welcome to wahnfood

The caterer of the bayreuth festival

BAYREUTHER FESTSPIELE

About

A theatre created for a single composer: the Bayreuth Festspielhaus. With an auditorium in which music unfolds like in no other theatre in the world. Without pomp, reduced to the essentials: the experience of his works as a celebration.

Connoisseurs, friends, sceptics – they all come to the Green Hill every summer to engage with his legacy away from the major cultural metropolises. Since 1876, when he was able to perform his „Ring des Nibelungen“ as a cycle for the first time.

Richard Wagner: revolutionary, utopian – his legacy remains alive here. At the most exciting music theatre festival in the world.
