Probably only Croche will be interested, but I got my confirmation yesterday that I have been allocated tickets to the 2005 performance of the Wagner Ring Cycle in Chicago.
James Morris as Wotan. Jane Eaglen as Brunnhilde. Placido Domingo as Siegmund. And I’m on the main floor (okay, in the last row, and mostly on the side. Still.).
Pretty sweet — if you like that kind of thing, that is.
