Opera Australia has called off its digital production of Wagner’s Ring cycle, due this November due to issues related to Covid travel and social distancing.
The plan is to reschedule the show, directed by Chinese-American Chen Shi-Zheng, some time in 2021.
Cancellation was left to the last possible moment.
The company hopes its ticket holders ‘will appreciate the reasons for this decision and are as delighted as we are that we can provide certainty with the rescheduled season in late 2021. We’ll be able to announce those dates in the coming days.’
