I came from AZ to see ONE singer, ANJA KAMPE, the most incredible Wagnerian Soprano I've seen or heard in 3 decades. She sang in Die Walkure. I've seen her in Europe, DC, and LA before. She is phenominal. I am also a Wagner traditionalist. This
terroristic attack on the RING was beyond anything my senses could bear. Wagner must have turned over in his grave every time this alleged attempt at performing his masterpieces occurred. I've seen the Ring 3 previous times - LA will NOT be my fourth! Anyone who wastes their money on this debacle will NOT have seen Wagner's supreme Operatic effort. It is a Travesty of the first magnitude!!!
