Not quite the last ride?

If you didn't listen to this afternoon's broadcast of Siegfried from the Met, James Morris noted in an interview that the Otto Schenk production of the Ring, though scheduled for retirement next month, will not be scrapped thereafter, leaving open the possibility of yet another revival at some point. (Are there other stages large enough to fit a full Met production?)

UPDATE (4/19): Maury has a report from the house.


  1. translation = Halp! the Lepage production sucks !

  2. They should reuse them for new productions...I mean, tweak the Walkure sets a bit, maybe add a few buildings, and we could have a new Fanciulla!


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
