Last seen in the UK at Covent Garden in 2009 (Ed: Although perhaps not to universal acclaim) the Gergiev/Tsypin Ring is to return to these shores in 2014. This time making its premiere in Birmingham.

As expected, Gergiev will conduct. No casting as of yet but one cycle will run from Wednesday 5 - Sunday 9 November, at the Birmingham Hippodrome (normally home to the magnificent Welsh National Opera when they venture so far from the border) A full cycle will cost you from £252 up to £756. A brochure, with full details can be read or downloaded here . Photos below plus a brief video - for the curious.
