THE RING: DIE WALKüRE The Metropolitan Opera 2009

As a self-proclaimed Ring Nut (or Ring Cuckoo as Dr. Sherwin Sloan, founder of the Wagner Society of Southern California, likes to address himself), I have joyfully begun collecting books on Wagner and the Ring, including such works as Jean Shinoda Bolen’s Jungian-inspired Ring of Power, M. Owen Lee’s Turning the Sky Round, and Bernard Shaw’s The Perfect Wagnerite.
