Today is Wagner's 200th birthday. Not something I celebrate, I assure you.
This post isn't about him, but about Anna Russell's wonderful satire of his Ring Cycle. I'd heard it from time to time on the radio, but today discovered there's actually a YouTube video of it.
If you don't have 20 hours over 4 evenings "at those prices" to see "The Ring," (or the inclination to do so) you might enjoy 30 minutes of Anna Russell telling you the story.
