HAMBURG - Singer-songwriter Patti Smith has accepted an assignment to cover this year's Bayreuth Festival for the German weekly Die Zeit, the newspaper said Wednesday.

Smith, a seminal performer in the New York pop music scene of the 1970s and '80s, is said to be an avid fan of the operas of Richard Wagner, said Die Zeit.

In this week's edition she writes about performances of 'Tannhaueser' and 'Parsifal', performed during the first week of the festival.

"It's very exciting and interesting," she was quoted as saying. "The conductors do amazing work."
