She told Mike Reynolds: ""One of the revelations to me, of all the productions we have done here, was just how good Wagner sounds in this theatre".
Having attended Grange Park's Tristan in 2011 I would have to agree. Indeed, the intimacy that the audience has with both the orchestra and stage is quiet unique and different to anything else that I have experienced. If only they had revived it this year - see videos below.
But more intriguingly she went on to say:
"Well, I’m not actually planning a Ring Cycle, but we will stage a Rheingold in 2015 and I think we’ll move on to Die Walküre thereafter"
Time will tell what follows but assuming the first two are successful it seems more than likely,, that they might indeed produce a full Cycle. Perhaps something for wagnerians to keep note of.
