"Wagner's Dream" Documents the "Ring" at the Met

Posted at 3:03 PM on April 5, 2013 by Rex Levang

The Metropolitan Opera is bringing back its mighty, much-discussed, big-budget big-name production of Wagner's Ring cycle, including a series of Saturday broadcasts beginning tomorrow (April 6, with Das Rheingold at noon Central).

They've also produced a film documentary, Wagner's Dream, about how the production came into being. You can view it online, for a limited time, here.
