Das Ende: Reviewing Der Ring des Nibelungen at San Francisco Opera

My review of SF Opera's new Ring production is up at San Francisco Classical Voice. It's an overview of the production and performances, and as such can't get into the deep details of either the work or the performances. I had intended to write individual reviews of each opera; that didn't happen. But since I have a lot to say that didn't make it into the review...there'll be some miscellaneous rambling here.

I'm relieved to see that Joshua Kosman reached the same conclusions I did, with more flair and in many fewer words. I'll be looking over the rest of the recent coverage soon; I rarely read reviews of performances I'm covering until I've written my own.
