Saturday Morning Cartoons: Going for Gold

Saturday, April 06, 2013

For this week’s Saturday Morning Cartoon we feature the Entry of the Gods into Valhalla, from Richard Wagner’s Das Rheingold. This music is featured at the end of the part of “Operavox Rhinegold,” a 1995 condensed, animated version of the opera in English from the BBC.

Das Rheingold, the first opera — or, sorry, Richard, "music drama" — in the Ring tetralogy, will be broadcast live from the Metropolitan Opera at 1 pm today, after the celebrated bass-baritone and great Wotan of the past James Morris joins Marilyn Horne on Operavore to talk about three great Wagner roles.
