So that is what all the fuss is about!!! Now I know why some people follow productions of Wagner’s Ring Cycle around the world. It is a marvellously sustained work of art, and completely unique. We finally had 35 Alumni members who were part of the experience, and when Lyndon Terracini, who is Artistic Director of Opera Australia, addressed our Welcome Dinner and said that Melbourne would see the event staged again twice more, three years apart, I had three people tell me that if we ran a tour to Melbourne for it in 2016, they would book again!!
The group who went to North East India had a great time at the Hornbill Festival and I hope they will share some of their photos. Sandy W, I was told, took over a thousand!
