Clouds over Wagner's Green Hill at famed Bayreuth Festival
23 Jul 2014 - 05:10

Katharina Wagner (L), and Eva Wagner-Pasquier pose as they arrive for the opening of the Bayreuth Wagner Opera Festival on July 25, 2012The curtain goes up on the Bayreuth Festival this week, but observers say the prestigious month-long summer music fest dedicated to the works of Richard Wagner could be losing some of its shine. Detractors say that under its current management -- Wagner's great-granddaughters Katharina Wagner and Eva Wagner-Pasquier, who took over in 2009 -- the festival is on its way downhill.

The singer, who hails from Blackburn, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east of Glasgow, has since sung for the pope and Queen Elizabeth II, but was tight-lipped about her performance at Celtic Park, home of European football giants Celtic. Games chief executive David Grevemberg said the 69-year-old Stewart's appearance would take the "excitement and anticipation to a whole new level".
