Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

Haiku Wednesday: The Ring Cycle

Leave a comment

The Ring by Wagner
Takes fifteen hours; and by
Sydney–two minutes.

When I was doing research on the availability of opera on the web, I came across this fun little video from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, “Wagner’s 15-hour Ring Cycle…in two in a half minutes” and wanted to share it with you.


If two and a half minutes was a too fast, you can read the story of The Ring Cycle here.

You might also enjoy the Sydney Symphony orchestra’s quick video “A Day in the Life of Maestro Darth Vader”.

Enjoy your day!
