    I thought his Bayreuth Fliegende Holländer was brilliant; I’m not sure his Ring has worn as well. Like many noteworthy directors, his work was a mixed bag. But still, a distinguished career.

    I love his Der Ring des Nibelungen, controversial but good enough for me.

    There are two rings on record, the first one was I think the first production of its kind in Bayreuth, lasers etc; the second is at Barcelona. I thought the Bayreuth performance was not necessarily the most inspiring (I'm not very keen on Anne Evans, for example) but nevertheless I was glad to have seen it for the production. The opening of Rheinegold is special even now.




    I saw the Barcelona DVD at a friend's house, I liked it very much, I remember it had some ideas . . . but beyond that, what the ideas were, I've gone a blank!
