If you order this DVD (as I did), don't expect a humorous (or in any way insightful) capsule version of Wagner's RING! [For that, buy ANNA RUSSELL'S hilarious 25-minute condensed version on CD. It is true comic classic! Russell also performs her RING synopsis on her FAREWELL CONCERT DVD.] And don't expect to gain any insight into the difficulty of staging THE RING. This film is just 50-plus minutes of backstage "home movies" which has been released as a "documentary." At least half the film consists of stage-hands playing cards or watching TV during a dress rehearsal. Hilarious! Rent it on Netflix...but be advised: don't waste your money.Was this review helpful?
