speaking of wagner
Apparently a theater company in Chicago is mounting a Ringwithout Wagner's music. Crazy, right? It's going to be six hours, which I'm not sure will be bearable ohne Musik. It's kind of impressive, though, to have a $54,000 Ring, compared to L.A.'s $32 million one. It's like they were listening to Ethan Iverson! If I end up seeing it I will of course give the full report. My first, and only, Ring was at Bayreuth in 2008. This will surely be an interesting change.
