THE RING in English

Share with your friends on:

When Seattle Opera first began presenting Wagner's RING, in the mid-1970s, the cycle was done twice each summer--once in the original German, once in Andrew Porter's English singing translation. Recordings survive of some of those original cycles, thanks to KUOW, who broadcast the English-language performances for several years. Enjoy these excerpts showcasing the voices of Seattle Opera's first generation of Wagner stars.
