A Burning Ring of Fire, Live from London

At long last, the final opera in Wagner‘s Ring Cycle live from London’s Royal Opera House, courtesy of BBC Radio 3Götterdämmerung, aka “The Twilight of the Gods”!

Not to be outdone, the world basically ends in this one.  So yeah, try to top that.  And no more sequels either…  The live-stream will start at 10:45am for the East Coast of the US, and will be available here for a week after.

A full Ring Cycle is sort of a benchmark for any operaphile, but it can be trying.  Wagner can be a bit much for me, though he certainly has his moments…  Hope you enjoyed, and keep your eyes on BBC Radio 3: Opera on 3 for future operas!
