Complete Ring Cycles - 2012. An incomplete listing

Written By The Wagnerian on Saturday, 10 December 2011 | 11:32:00 pm

I am presently looking at compiling a list of all Wagner performance for the coming 12 months. Alas, this is taking longer than I would hope. However, in the mean time, here is an (incomplete) list of full Ring Cycles in 2012. As all details are open to change please consult the official websites of each house. The Wagnerian, takes no responsibility for any such changes or inaccuracies herein. Next up, an incomplete list of Tristans - time permitting.
