The Ring Cycle

As if the running times for The Ring—composed of four mini-epic operas—isn’t enough to make your blood run cold (Das Rheingold: 2.5 hours; Die Walküre: 4.5 hours; Siegfried: 5 hours; and Götterdämmerung: 5.25 hours), Seattle Opera’s caveat is sure to do you in: “All times are approximate.” But the pros know all this tush time is completely worth it—there’s simply nothing that compares to Wagner’s monumental work, which features Rhine maidens, a lustful dwarf, Valkyries, a dragon and one ring to rule them all.
