It's likely that the offer from Bayreuth came while the singer(s) was 
still learning the full role.   Rather than lose a good artist, the 
theater split the role.  Back in the early '60s, there was a lot of 
Wotan sharing -  among the likes of Jerome Hines, Hans Hotter, James 
Milligan, Otto Wiener and Theo Adam.

The production was new in 2013, the 200th anniversary of Wagner's birth.

You only need two things: WD-40 and Duct Tape.  If something moves and 
it shouldn't, use the Duct Tape.  If it won't move and it should, use 
the WD-40.
