    Brava!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m currently watching the Ring Cycle operas on PBS and I”m enthralled with the “Machine”….how visionary and the quality of the performances…what a thrill…I live in south Arkansas and I am now disabled..this chance to see Wagner’s amazing operas is like having all the chocolate I could ever eat…

    Dear WVIZ,

    “The Ring” is like a book that one cannot put down. It’s great that PBS is doing it again in the new production. The trouble is that starting these operas at 9:00 on week nights is a bit late don’t you think? Even in NY they start early.

    Yours with bags under my eyes,

    Gary Tishkoff

    The late start of these operas is the only complaint I have about the operas. I feel for anyone, like yourself, who lives in EST; last night’s broadcast had to have ended for you around 1:00 a .m.! Maybe in the future PBS can see a way to start these broadcasts 1-2 hours EARLIER than they are now!!!!!! (And I thought that I was staying up late?!)

    Be prepared for tonight, when the production will continue for 1 1/2 hours LONGER!!

    Yours truly,

    Joyce Rios

    I agree with Gary, even here in Phoenix, it does not end until half past midnight, a little too late for me.

    Ouch, I had to watch Renee Fleming’s interviews with Jay & Debbie afterwards and it lasted here until 1:30 AM. Just wonderful & the music and staging & Jay & Debbie & the incredible bird Monja Erdmann among them all. And I hope Mime doesn’t have a heart attack at the Met singing Siegfried as he did in ‘09. Jay has the stamina and stage presence of a great tenor—-sort of a country-style Pavarotti!

    Don’t see how anyone could do Siegfried better than this fellow

    Wonderful production and choice of cast superb but, even at the late hour they find time to put in programme commercials.

    PBS, as a student, I was unable to watch this production when you showed it. Are you ever going to post it to your website or make available in some other context? Four night is a row was too much time to take off from my school work.

  • Tyra Steinburg

    Thanks a bunch! I truly loved the article.

  • Tracy Irvin

    I caught just enough of the last episode to intrigue me. I wonder if this will be available to purchase in the future.
