Opera at the Met

It would appear that someone has made a BIG sacrifice to the opera gods regarding the the Met’s 2010-11 new production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

From the New York Times:

In January 2007, during a public discussion at The New York Times, Mr. Gelb first revealed the names of the lead singers for the Met’s new production of Wagner’s “Ring,” directed by Robert Lepage, to be introduced starting in 2010: Deborah Voigt, singing her first staged Brünnhilde in a complete “Ring”; Bryn Terfel as Wotan; Ben Heppner as Siegfried.

Praise. Jesus.
I. can’t. wait.
