Saturday Morning Cartoons: A Rapid Ring Cycle

Saturday, September 29, 2012

This Saturday's cartoon features "Siegfried’s Rhine Journey" from Richard Wagner’s Gotterdammerung. Leitmotifs from this music and the other Ring operas can be found in an animated short called, “The Ring in 2.5 minutes — with leitmotifs!”

Saturday's on-air performance comes from the new release Twilight of the Gods: The Ultimate Wagner Ring Collection, which features excerpts from the new Metropolitan Opera production of the Ring cycle.
