Wanted: Patron with $75 Million and Three Opera Houses

Extreme opera nuts like me need something exceeding the length of the Ring!

And after reading Tim Rutherford-Johnson and Mark Berry's rave reviews of Mittwoch, from Stockhausen's monumental Licht opera cycle, it's apparent that some enterprising company - or, more likely, a consortium of companies - needs to stage the whole cycle. Or maybe the whole enterprise should just be turned over to Birmingham Opera and Graham Vick, who did such a stunning job with Mittwoch. I'd travel for it - and I hear Birmingham has a pretty good orchestra, too.
