Singers tell us that rehearsals for the Opéra de Paris Ring cycle have been called off after cast members tested positive for Covid-19.

The intention is to resume rehearsals in a week, givign just enough time for a premiere at the end of the month.

There has been no statement from the OdP. All we have is this:

We hope to be able to record and broadcast Richard Wagner’s Ring cycle by the end of November. We are also looking into the possibility of adapting the scheduling of this cycle at the Radio France Auditorium, at the beginning of December.

    Surely that photo is of the Garnier? The Opera de Paris ‘Ring’, like most productions, was scheduled to be at the Bastille. This Ring had some arresting photos of set design/set backdrops, based on the publicity materials from last year.
