Today at 1 pm, WQXR brings you Richard Wagner’s Das Rheingold from the Royal Opera House.

To warm up for this epic drama, this week's Saturday Morning Cartoon gives you the whole story in an extremely non-Wagnerian length. The cartoon is called, "Wagner’s 15-hour Ring Cycle…in two-and-a-half minutes." Go for the gold!

I still prefer Anna Russell's version. Especially when she says, "You're right back where you STARTED!!!"
