The best Ring, 24 Dec 2012
If you regret that no modern production is ever true to Wagner's own stage directions - and you should, because it is always disappointing these days, usually ugly or merely provocative for no good reason - this is the one for you because it looks so damn good and is brilliantly performed. I've more or less decided never to go to a live Ring again after spending so much on productions that simply make you squirm. Save your money - buy the CDs!
Or do as I did and simply live with Solti's old, unequalled original recording from the 60s and make your own stage scenes in your head. They will always be better than any modern production!
