I enjoyed the ring cycle. You are a wonderful storyteller. Your recount of the saga complemented Wagner's music and offered an opportunity to engage even more.

I have been fortunate to have been to the Seattle Opera "Ring" cycle twice. Your broadcast makes me want to go again....such a spectacular piece of music. Thank you...

I am very grateful that you have devoted so much time to this great work. Many are intimidated by Wagner but many are also intimidated by classical music. The way that you have connected the story with the music is a work of art in itself.
I would love more Wagner on the program.

PS: Listeners may want to know about the upcoming ring cycle at the Met and the fact that they can see and hear it at a movie theatre.

I generally find your programs very listenable, but an entire week of the ring is just too much. It's swell learning about the story, but adding in all that Wagnerian music is too far over the top.
