Robert Lepage's much-debated staging of Wagner's "Ring" cycle will be released on DVD and Blu-ray next month ahead of the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth in May.
Early in Wagner's "Ring" cycle, Wotan glimpses the new home he has commissioned for his fellow gods and exclaims: "Vollendet das ewige Werk!" (The everlasting work is finished!")
The "Ring" has arrived, all 90,000 pounds of it. And, for the most part, it's worth its weight in gold.
"There are things that will make sense when you get the whole story, because they echo things that happened in earlier operas," he said.
Lepage acknowledges some of the problems, but the criticism that he has ignored the drama clearly rankles.
