Delius in Bayreuth - 1894

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 90:

In Bayreuth I heard "Parsifal" twice and Tannhäuser once. Parsifal is magnificent: the finest work of Wagner The orchestra and theatre are perfect. I am really very glad I came here, it will no doubt be of great benefit to me.
