The Ring of the Nibelung!

This might not be everybody's stein of bier, but PBS is showing the Met's fabulous new productions of Wagner's Ring operas (Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried, and Gotterdammerung), a great story based on German and NOrse mythology--over the next 4 nights on Great Performances at 9pm. This evening we watched a "making of" show about the opera productions that was fun, too. Well, for classical music lovers.

The production looks really cool, very high-tech, and amazing costumes, voices, etc. IMO Das Rheingold is the most approachable--more action, less standing around singing ;-) The Ring has gods, heroes, giants, a dragon--and don't forget the sexy Rheinmaidens and their close-harmony singing and some of the most lush and beautiful orchestral music ever written. We're very lucky to be able to experience this for free--thank you, public television!

=alstro, busy for the next 4 nights
