Hans Hotter on Bayreuth
Hans Hotter on the importance of Bayreuth in his career:
"It was the main point of interest when one was being interviewed by press
or radio or television, and of great importance for other engagements."
Hans Hotter quoted in his biography Hans Hotter - Man and Artist by Penelope Turing
Hans Hotter's debut in Bayreuth came in 1952 as Kurwenal in Wieland Wagner's production of Tristan und Isolde. He also sang Wotan (Die Walküre and Siegfried, but not Das Rheingold).
