Speaking of Wagner

Critic Alex Ross went to see "The Social Network" the other day--it reminded him of, what else, Richard Wagner.

If you're looking to pursue that comparison on your own, you're in luck. The Metropolitan Opera's season of HD transmissions starts this weekend, with Wagner's "Rheingold." (NB-- radio broadcasts don't start till December.) The "Rheingold" production is by Robert Lepage, and apparently includes interactive video, puppets, shape-shifting sets-- so it should be something to behold. More info on times and venues here.
