Put a Ring on it, Live from London


Image by Arthur Rackham

BBC Radio 3 will be streaming Live performances of Richard Wagner‘s Ring Cycle from London’s Royal Opera House starting today with Das Rheingold.  It’s a landmark opera season for Wagner (and a couple other opera giants), as 2013 marks the bicentennial of his birth!  So expect lots of Ring Cycles going on all over the world…

BBC’s transmission starts at 7pm London time, but if you’re on the East coast (of America) like myself, it’ll start at 2pm.  Check here for the full Opera on 3 schedule (mark your calendars now, the next installment in the Ring Cycle will be Thursday).
