All that’s Left is this Ring of Gold, Not-Live from London

Last week I featured the live BBC Radio 3 transmissions of the first two installments of Royal Opera House‘s Ring Cycle, but I didn’t realize the third opera, Siegfried, was due to go up during the weekend!  So I’m afraid we missed the live stream, but thankfully, as with all other BBC Radio 3 transmissions, it’ll be up for free listening for a week.  In fact, if you act fast, you can still hear the full cycle today; Das Rheingold, the first in the series, is up for just 5 more hours along with the other operas right here.

(PS, this Siegfried is way hotter than the one I saw in person…  Click on the image or here to see the rest of Rackham‘s illustrations.)

The final opera in the Cycle, Götterdämmerung, will live-stream tomorrow at 10:45am east-coast-time, so set your alarms…
