    Wow, this fight is very tight so far. Or if it's a race, Wagner is winning by a nose at the moment (51.61% vs. 48.39%, 124 votes).

    I think the retiarius should have the edge over the mirmillone, perhaps I've watched Spartacus too often though!

    I love both. Both are intense; Wagner can be very delicately beautiful, whereas the strong contrast in Mahler is also fascinating.
