I've just signed up for four consecutive nights next year, during which I'm hoping for total immersion in Wagner's Ring. I've heard it's going to be the biggest and most inviting Ring the UK will have ever seen, and that it will be open and accessible to anyone who's interested in getting into it. I reckon it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to get to the bottom of Wagner, and achieve a full and complete penetration of his Ring's innermost recesses.
Despite all this, I have to confess I'm still worried Wagner's Ring will end up being a bit tough for me to get into. It's all a bit daunting: the whole performance is apparently going to be live on stage at the Royal Festival Hall, and I'm told there will even be extreme close-ups of the live action projected onto a giant screen. It all sounds pretty intense and, if I end up being unable to penetrate Wagner's Ring on the night, I'm worried the whole experience could end up in embarrassment, confusion, or outright humiliation - particularly if everyone else there is enjoying ecstasies of pleasure from penetrating it for hours on end. So I'm hoping this guide will give me some useful tips, to help me ease my way into Wagner's Ring with complete confidence.
