As a musician with a native understanding of the Wagner idiom, Adam Fischer conducted two Wagner productions at the Bayreuth Festival for years. True to the traditions of the Budapest Wagner Days, he once again works here with world-renowned Wagnerian singers in the highly acclaimed staging by Magdolna Parditka and Alexandra Szemerédi. Among the finest dramatic sopranos working today, Violeta Urmana has demonstrated her qualities in lead operatic roles under conductors including Claudio Abbado, James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Pierre Boulez and Lorin Maazel. In the title role, German tenor Peter Seiffert built his career as a Wagnerian singer in Bayreuth from the mid-1990s, and featured in the title role on Daniel Barenboim's Grammy Award-winning recording of Tannhäuser. The operatic repertoire of Austrian Albert Pesendorfer comprises more than 60 roles. Among Wagnerian parts, he has sung Hans Sachs, Gurnemanz, Fasolt, Hunding, Hagen, Landgrave Hermann and Daland.
