Thanks bangorballetboy - good to have such a cogent, simple explanation!

 

Also many thanks for your Instagram photos, particularly the ROH orchestra on stage.

How was Gunther?

 

I'd meant to say that I rather liked the production in how it treated the Gibichungs - an incestuous ménage à trois from the outset with no redeeming features.  But that does make it all the more difficult for the singers to gain any sympathy.

The use of Nothung to kill Siegfried last night was an act of necessity as the spear had been accidentally kicked off stage!

in an ENO performance The anvil in the Forging scene came to grief and had to be held by Siegfried. Made splitting it with Nothing slightly tricky! Lovely Alberto Remedios totally unphased.
