Starting at 9PM Central Daylight Time tonight, Monday the 10th, PBS are telecasting the Met "Ring" cycle in the Great Performance series. Tonight is a two-hour documentry of Robert Lepage's production made backstage. The four music-dramas follow at 9PM CDT each evening Tuesday through Friday this week.
Levine conducts the first two, Fabio Luisi the others. Voigt, Waltraud Meier, Stephanie Blythe, Bryn Terfel, Jonas Kaufmann Eric Owens, Franz-Josef Selig, Hans-Peter Konig, and Jay Hunter Morris are in the cast, also "Te Monster" stage machine that didn't always work.
I don't know, but hope that it cn be viewed elsewhere. I'm going to try to stay awake with preparatory naps. It's going to be a long night for "Goetterdaemmerung" Friday, but undoubtedly there is or will be a DVD issue.
