I feel like I’m breaking a story!(I’m probably kinda late on this one though…) The Met Opera Shop has begun to take pre-orders for a box set of the Robert Lepage HD Ring Cycle. The 8 DVD set includes all the Ring operas plus the Susan Froemke documentary Wagner’s Dream for $135.00. The documentary, which has also been released on a separate DVD for pre-order as well is for $25.00.The documentary as well as the operas are also being released on Blu-Ray for $30.00 and $150.00 respectively.
Also being released into the mix of Ring merchandise is a 2-CD highlights set called The Twilight of the Gods. Little content information is available on the Met Opera Shop Website. It will be available on August 27th in the Met Opera Shop and September 11 everywhere else for $19.99. It doesn’t look like any more information about a full cast recording or a CD taken from the radio broadcasts has been released, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled. Enjoy.
You heard it here first, folks!!
