    Sure, it's easy enough for people to poke fun at Wagner's Ring and do parodies of it, such as the late Anna Russell , but to call its story and situations absurd and ridiculous actually misses the point altogether . I actually enjoy these spoofs myself . The Ring is mythology and fantasy . So...

  10. Opera
    Always controversial. Why do you like it or hate it? It's sometimes called the greatest opera ever. What makes it so compelling? It really grabs me. Those chords opening Act 3 , sounding and wafting upwards always grip me. What are it's meanings? What is its power? Is the power of the potion...

    It's been difficult recently to access the forum and it's been suggested that some of us don't have a real life away from Talk Classical! :lol: That got me to thinking - I do have a real life, but when it comes to listening to music, I absolutely need TC in order to tell people what I'm...
