    The staging looks fascinating.

    Lots of photos of the staging at this link (scroll down a ways):

    I don't think you will like the Wotan. Reason enough for me to stay away.

    What I have seen of it on You Tube, Wotan has a weird pair of sunglasses. Looks like they cover one eye maybe. I didn't mind the Wotan though. And in fact, have hit the buy button on four separate DVDs because it was about $100 cheaper that way than as a set. I think I am going to like it and will have to report back some day, but as I am just into Walkure on the Sawallisch Ring on You Tube it will be a while before I get to the de Billy set.
