The staged performances feature the best Wagner singers year after year, presenting stars such as Waltraud Meier, Evelyn Herlitzius, Linda Watson, Annette Dasch, Christian Franz, Gerhard Siegel, Walter Fink, Iréne Theorin, Robert Dean Smith, Jay Hunter Morris, Elisabet Strid, James Rutherford, Bo Skovhus, Anja Kampe, Johan Botha or Matti Salminen.
Following the artistic intentions of Wagner, each performance is a genuine Gesamtkunstwerk, offering the audience an all-round artistic experience, centred around the powerful music of the Maestro.
The artistic director and conductor of the globally acclaimed event series is Kossuth Prize-winning Ádám Fischer. In addition to the four grandiose instalments of The Ring of the Nibelung and Parsifal, the Budapest Wagner Days in 2017 will also stage a concert opera version of Rienzi.
