    Default BBC Proms 2013

    The programme for this year's Proms has been launched.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/proms

    The complete Ring Cycle, with Daniel Barenboim conducting is the one of the highlights.

    Exciting programme this year. Especially if you're a fan of Wagner.
    Tristan und Isolde, Tannhauser and Parsifal, as well as the Ring. I love Wagner but I think I would struggle to stand through four hours of non staged/non surtitled opera performance.
    Might try for seating tickets for a couple of them.

    I nearly screamed when I saw all the Wagner. Definitely going, nothing will stop me.

    Yeah, Shostakovich's 6th isn't performed enough! Who is the conductor and orchestra for this program?
