This week Marie and I are going to see Wagner’s entire Ring. Tonight we set off with Das Rheingold and I am looking so much forward to reencounter this magnificent 1920s setting with all its violence, humour and beauty.
Unfortunately Poul Elming who was to sing Loge tonight and Siegmund tomorrow has fallen ill. Instead Michael Kristensen will sing Loge and Stig Fogh Andersen will sing Siemund. Which is not bad at all. The only thing I regret a bit is that it means Stig Fogh Andersen will be singing both Siegmund and Siegfried. Of course father and son can be alike, but this ruins some of the magic.
And yet I have been happy all day. This is what we have been waiting for for more than a year.
Bye, bye Puol. (And yes, that is an open cheese sandwich he is flashing).
