L.A. Weekly on the Long Beach Ring

Filed under: Music — Patterico @ 4:14 pm

The L.A. Weekly’s Alan Rich has a review of the Long Beach Ring that is more positive (and on-target) than the L.A. Times review was. Rich calls the performance “an authentic Wagnerian experience, at times an exhilarating one, and seldom below competence.”

I hope some of you are there today.

As for us, we will be going to the Robert Wilson production of “Butterfly” tonight at the L.A Opera. I’m not looking forward to the (lack of) visuals, but the music promises to be every bit as good as when we saw it a couple years ago.
