Bayreuth 2013 links that WORK

THIS is a link to five of the Bayreuth 2013 performances. What's more it actually works,: no need to subscribe or be in Germany or whatever. Plus if you can follow the commentary, it's better than average. The downside is that it's audio only, though they give still photos. But from what we've heard that might be an advantage. Besides, it's good to listen without visual aids, to keep your aural ears sharp. There is a link to  Lohengrin, but it's not a new production, but a reprise of the one currently in rep, with the same conductor (Andris Nelsons) and principals, who are superb. The director is Hans Neuenfels. It's brilliant ! I wrote about in HERE in 2012.
