As part of the general buildup to their first Ring Cycle in 2013, Opera Australia have announced a 4 week festival of Wagner/Ring themed events in 2013. This includes: comedy, cabaret,  film, food and wine events, lectures, pre-performance talks, plus other, as yet to be determined events.So far so good, but they have also tantalisingly announced a series of "...mini versions of The Ring of the Nibelung". Exactly what these are or consist of has yet to be announced. More news as I get it.

In the meantime, the cast of their full Ring cycle will include:

"English soprano Susan Bullock as Brünnhilde, Finnish bass-baritone Juha Uusitalo as Wotan, American Heldentenor Gary Lehman as Siegfried and Australian Helden baritone John Wegner as Alberich".
