Last Sunday, Wolfgang Wagner, grandson of Richard Wagner, has died. He was leader of the Bayreuth opera festival for more than half a century, until 2008. From 1951 till 1966 he did this together with his brother Wieland, who died in that last year. Wolfgang Wagner was also the great grandson of Liszt.

In 2008 he handed over the leadership of the Bayreuth festival, after a lot of quarreling, to his daughter Katharina and her half sister Eva.
