Reines gold!

This "dialogue" from wellsung is amusing, to say the least.

Perhaps this will be the super-duper-digital Ring that has yet to appear. My dread is that it will be Thielemann's Bayreuth cycle, though I have concerns about the quality of the Bayreuth shows of late. The Barenboim/Kupfer production is probably the last one which can have some right to the lineage of Böhm and Knappertsbusch.

We'll see about the Met cycle. 2007 is a long, long way off yet.
