You’re not alone! Many people are intimidated by opera, and perhaps most of all by an opera that sounds really confusing.
The Ring tells a famously complicated story, featuring interrelated gods, dwarves and mortals, and a plot so twisted it makes the most complex dramas of our current golden age of television look simple.
So, here’s what the Sydney Symphony Orchestra did when they performed The Ring, An Orchestral Adventure, the same piece the Cape Symphony will perform on January 19 and 20. They created a two-and-a-half-minute summary of the 15-hour Ring Cycle. Enjoy!
