Wagner: The Ring Cycle (In English) Hunter, Remedios, Bailey/Garrard; Goodall/Mackerras. London, 1970- 1973
Listen to a Sample:
This marks our first complete Ring Cycle at Opera Depot and one which has never before been commercially available. These are the broadcasts of the original production of the English Ring Cycle with Reginald Goodall. These recordings are remarkable testaments to the power of Wagner in English or otherwise and have very interesting deviations (and in my opinion to a one improvements) including the Sieglinde of Ava June, The Wanderer of Don Garrard and most notably the conducting of Sir Charles Mackerras in The Rhinegold, acting as a last minute replacement for Goodall. We feel that all who love Wagner will appreciate the brilliance of these performance. The sound is quite good!
