Letter: Confused scramble for Ringside seats at Bayreuth

The Independent Online
Sir: The German lady sitting next to John Walsh on the plane to Bayreuth would have been even more astonished by his possession of a ticket to the Wagner Festival if she had read the resulting article. Walsh doesn't even bother to tell us which opera he saw, preferring to pad out his article with gibes about the audience (who, judging from his transcription of their notices requesting tickets, don't appear to be able to spell their own language). Next time please don't waste the ticket - I can tell one Ring opera from another and would be willing to report back on the experience.
