I was so glad I went to see this. For one thing, it was beautiful and well done. But also I'd always been curious about this opera but hesitated to see it; I was afraid a Wagner opera would be boring, too long, irritating music, or whatever. I finally went to this HD version because I figured it was in a movie theater and pretty cheap, so I could easily walk out. Instead I was riveted. He really IS good! Go see it.
