The Bayreuth Festival plans to broadcast opera live to cinemas, Katharina Wagner has said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag. Over a hundred German movie houses are included in the plans, and there are discussions with cinemas in Switzerland, Austria and (yay!) Great Britain too.
The first broadcast will be Stefan Herheim's Parsifal on 11 August, accompanied by a break feature with Klaus Florian Vogt and Katharina Wagner. She expects tickets to cost €27-32.
