Description

This is episode 3 of 3 in a series about Richard Wagner's collection of German Operas, "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (the "Ring Cycle" in English). In this episode, I share about the overall experience—what it was like spending six days in San Francisco watching a massive, luxurious, expensive show split up into four parts and spread over six days. It was an amazing show worth going to, without a doubt. 


Note: here are some resources for free Ring Cycle performances you can watch online: https://www.operanorth.co.uk/the-ring-cycle/ (Opera North), and https://www.metopera.org/season/on-demand/ (Met Opera On Demand - 7 Day Free Trial available).


2021 Ring Festival: the San Francisco Opera has decided to host an online "Ring Festival" streaming this production that I attended. Visit https://sfopera.com/opera-is-on/ringfestival/ to watch the ring cycle in its entirety, starting on March 6-7, 2021.
