ST. PAUL, Minn. — The desire for love and its renunciation is at core of the Wagner Ring Cycle. All that passion and all that disorder are on display in a production of the Mini-Ring this weekend at the Cowles Center for the Performing Arts, a production by the Minnesota Concert Opera.

Singers Sarah Heltzel and Richard Paul Fink, musical director Jonathan Khuner, artistic director Stanford and associate director Antonia Felix joined Steve Staruch in the Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Studio for a preview.
