The heading says it all really, but we thought we would provide another piece of information to what must be the worst kept secret in Proms history. But, just in-case you have not been keeping track, The Berlin Staatskapelle and Barenboim will be performing a Ring Cycle at the 2013 Proms. We can now tell you that a little forest bird has flown in the window - yet again - and whispered to us that O'Neill will perform Siegmund in Walkure on 23, July 2013. Remember where you heard it first.
