Wagner's Ring Cycle: Free and Online (Edward Jajko, USA, 03/03/21 4:37 am)

Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen, in the staging by Francesca Zambello, will be presented FREE beginning the first weekend of March.

Saturday-Sunday, March 6-7, will bring Das Rheingold; Sat.-Sun., Mar. 13-14, Die Walküre; Mar. 20-21, Siegfried; and Mar. 27-28, Die Götterdämmerung.

The website sfopera.com/ringfestival is, frankly, confusing, since it talks of payments, tickets, etc., but those are for subsidiary events. Dig down into the website and you will find the links for the free operas. This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear the Ring Cycle for free, anywhere in the world. The operas will not be presented live, but are videos of the 2018 SF production and will be available for the 48 hours of the weekend (notate bene: the 48 hours are undoubtedly Pacific Standard Time, which is GMT less eight hours).

My wife and I saw this production at the SF Opera some years ago. The music and singing were spectacular.

For those who might like a greater California experience, there is always the California Virtual Book Fair, which will somehow be held online this weekend. Google that name or abaa.org.

In any event, the free Ring Cycle is a gift not to be scorned.

JE comments:  Thank you, Ed!  It's hard to think of pandemic-era benefits, but an unprecedented access to on-demand culture may be one.  So who's up for 17 hours of Wagner?  Someday, someday, I'd love to do it.
