The Colón Ring

"The four operas were played in a single 12-hour day with a running time of approximately seven hours. Like some other Wagnerian premieres ancient and modern, the event itself was fraught with near-disaster, including the loss of original director Katharina Wagner, the original conductor and some of the cast. But the show went on, saved at the last moment by one of La Fura dels Baus’s director/choreographers, Valentina Carrasco, and the conductor Roberto Paternostro - neither a Ring novice but hampered by having not much more than a month to rehearse..."
