The latest generation of the Wagner family - who have now, after intense behind-the-scenes legal shenanigans, inherited artistic control of the Bayreuth Festival - are to confront many of the controversial issues surrounding the Wagnerian cultural legacy.

These include the anti-semitism in Wagner's writings, the alleged collusion between the Festival and the Third Reich, and the personal relationship that may have existed between Hitler and Winifred Wagner.

There is also to be a new policy on accessibility to the Festival and its productions, designed to counter continuous criticism of "elitist" policies in the past.
