It has been announced today that this summer’s Ring will be screened by Sky Arts HD in Germany, Austria, the UK, Ireland and Italy.
The transmission will be over the July 30-31 weekend in the UK and Ireland.
Stephen Fry will present.
No chance of Rupert appearing as Alberich.
Katie Wagner says: ‘I look forward to the cooperation with Sky and really appreciate its commitment. With this, many people can enjoy the performances and I believe it’s in the spirit of Richard Wagner to reach as many arts fans as possible. This is a large and prestigious project, realised with state-of-the-art technology.’
