The Lucerne Festival is known as one of the most renowned classical music festvals over the world featuring outstanding artists every year. In 2007, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra was "orchestra in residence" - with Jonathan Nott as "artiste étoile" and an extensive programme including a concert performance of Richard Wagner's "Das Rheingold".
In summer 2013, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra and Jonathan Nott have been invited once again as "orchestra in residence" to the festival. To mark the composer’s 200th birthday, LUCERNE FESTIVAL is presenting the first complete performance of the Ring cycle in the Wagner city of Lucerne (30th August - 4th September), with Jonathan Nott, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, and internationally acclaimed Wagner singers, including Albert Dohmen, Petra Lang, Mikhail Petreno, and Klaus Florian Vogt.

That’s why we feel it our special duty to give audiences only our best.
