  1. The opera is a goody just to listen to. (I’ve never actually seen it live.) I think it’s the most aurally approachable of all his operas – though I do speak as not being one of your ‘classic’ Wagner fanatics.

    • You would have enjoyed this more than I did. I’d seen the opera twice before with more traditional stagings and enjoyed it. My knowledge of opera is limited so I find I don’t enjoy concert or ‘semi-staged’ productions. I’ve enjoyed that format used for musicals I’ve seen but they were always shows where I knew every note before I walked in the theater.
