Not going to San Francisco's Ring Cycle? Well look what you are missing: A Ring In Pictures

Written By The Wagnerian on Saturday, 18 June 2011 | 4:26:00 am

It would seem that SF Opera's Ring cycle is selling out fast. Considering it only happens every 10 years or so it may be your last chance to to see the Cycle in SF for a while. So, just in case you are still undecided, here, in HD, is what used to be known in my day as a "Photo Feature" of SF's Ring Cycle. I have even added an audio documentary introduction to the Ring, Ring Cycles and the people that go to them - to boot!. Media and Wagner heavy, your computer may enter its own Gotterdammerung - you have been warned!
