3:53 am
fest in the house pool festival theater in by white. every year celebrities and v.i.p.'s graced its red carpet. it's as much a part of the festival as richard wagner's music. does is probably mainly because of this there's his acoustic sound because it's a unique authentic venue. this theatre was built by and for richard wagner well over 100 years ago now and it's still standing in the same place and basically functions just as it did in the 19th century view. that must be a major part of its fascination and that's when i was most. the pyrite festival is a media event the british era parents prince charles queen sylvia of sweden and german chancellor angela merkel have all been hand. celebrities and journalists
