We were here for an afternoon performance. The building and open spaces are flooded with afternoon light, even on a cloudy day. Brilliant.

The incredible music of Wagner is mated with the equally incredible voices of the principal singers in this production. The rather stark and sparse staging and use of contemporary "wall street" garb only accentuates this epic musical masterpiece. Simply wonderful even at a staggering five...More
