Doppelführung in Bayreuth?

"A great-granddaughter of composer Richard Wagner [Katharina Wagner] is teaming with star German conductor Christian Thielemann to bid for the leadership of the Bayreuth festival, the pair announced in an interview published Saturday. (...) 'We know each other so well that we can tell each other our opinions without holding back,' Thielemann was quoted as saying. 'Apart from that, we would be exactly the right age for a new era.'"
