With composer Ödön Mihalovich as its first president, the Wagner Society of Hungary, which was founded in 1872 in Pest, was actively involved in the completion by 1876 of the Bayreuth shrine of the cult of Wagner. This concert, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of the society, features Michael Volle, one of today's leading singers of Wagner. The eminent baritone has enchanted audiences at major festivals, opera houses and concert halls as Wotan and Hans Sachs. A recurring guest of leading o...pera stages, he has performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Staatsoper in Munich and Vienna, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the Royal Opera House in London. At the anniversary concert Atala Schöck, who in recent years has sung such Wagner roles as Fricka and Brangäne, will perform as well. The conductor will be the international renowned Pinchas Steinberg.
