Wagner’s Ring in a weekend

Some ideas are so glaringly obvious, you wonder why they don’t catch on. Gustav Kuhn is performing the complete Ring as a weekend holiday package in the Tirol. Rheingold on Friday night, the rest over Saturday and Sunday. Read here (auf Deutsch). Tickets still on sale.

    Lacks ambition if you ask me! Cologne did the whole thing in two days (Saturday/Sunday) a few years back. And more than once I believe!

      Please check your statement here. Dates? Complete? Sleeping time? The Erl run provides little sleep, and Das Rheingold is outside the 24 hours.

    Gustav Kuhn is a great artist. Too bad the classical music world is such a hollow money trench, that nonconformist personalities like him are automatically rendered as “outlaws”.

  • Paul says:

    “KUHN: Das Sorgenkind ist der “Siegfried”, denn der beginnt um 23 Uhr und endet nach 4 Uhr Früh.”

    Siegfried begins at 11pm and ends after 4am!?!

  • William Safford says:

    My favorite “complete” Ring was the one I heard Anna Russell perform. It was some of the best 15 minutes of my life.
