Heiling in purple

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband Joachim Sauer (L) arrive for the opening of this year's Bayreuth Wagner opera festival outside the so-called Gruener Huegel (Green Hill) opera house in Bayreuth July 25, 2007. Every year, thousands of Wagner devotees -- some of whom have waited 10 years for a ticket -- flock to the Bavarian town of Bayreuth to revel in the month-long extravaganza of music by one of the country's greatest composers.
