Kaj Aune
Don't ever say that I don't try and bring you Wagner news that other sources, rightly I am sure, wouldn't dare.

Least you missed its premiere at the Borealis Festival in March and following on from his 2008 "remake" of Der Fliegende Holländer with Wolfgang Ganter in Berlin,   Kaj Aune will perform his, one man, remake of ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’ at this years Spor Festival on May 17.  Kaj Aune will single-handedly replace an entire opera house and its machinery. The fact that this is doomed to failure is, he says, central to the performance.
The video below is a promo from Borealis  this year.
