Fabulous singing, wonderful singers really inhabiting their characters. Kind of out there
production, but it grew on me.
I am really glad this whole Ring Cycle was shown in the movie theater, and I hope the theaters will
show many more concerts, operas, plays, and hopefully soon ballet performances. Although I am sure, seeing such performances in the original theaters is probably better, for those who cant get to New York or London or where ever, and who couldn't afford the astronomical ticket prices, having the opportunity to watch these works in close up with back stage commentary and at affordable prices is fantastic.
Although friends who had seen these productions live at the Met in New York said that the actual in
theatre experience was superior, this had to be the next best thing, and the close ups of the singers' faces, and the sometime precariousness of the set they were dealing with while singing were very powerful. The voices were absolutely wonderful, especially the actor/singer who played Alberich. The sound was loud....don't know how that would compare with the acoustics at the Met itself. But still for those unable to get to or afford the prices at the Met in New York this was a great experience.
