To brighten up your Wednesday, here’s a glimpse of Wotan from the Metropolitan Opera‘s new Ring cycle, coming this fall. (You can click on the pause button to make the Flash banner stop on the Wotan image; if anyone knows how to extract the image I’d love to hear from you, because I haven’t found a way to do it!) If I were still on the East Coast, I’d be finding a way to go see this. As it is, I’m hoping I can somehow eventually get one of those “Mingle with the Gods” posters depicting Bryn Terfel as Wotan (nope, I don’t know where or how you can get one–sorry)–and maybe there will be video recordings available eventually.
(ETA: And courtesy of Dver, here is the drool-worthy photo!)
