MET Ring Cycle 2013: Full cast and dates

Written By The Wagnerian on Monday, 4 June 2012 | 2:06:00 am

For those that missed it. No mention if "that" horse will be returning mind you.

If you should be remotely interested: I don't think that Lepage's production is anywhere near as bad as many critics have said. It has some marvelous moments. Alas, I don't feel it was fully utilized on its first run and neither did Lepage seem to know what to do with his performers. Its as if he was more interested at times with what the machine could do than how it should support the cast. This could be rectified with more imaginative stage direction, but time will tell. Oh, and the horse really has to go.
