Opening Bars of Rheingold

What an opening, eh? This is apropos of nothing, like most of the posts on this blog, but I often wonder why people interested in fiction of the fantastic rarely – if ever – discuss Wagner’s Ring Cycle. And particularly the various epic interpretations of it – such as this one by the Met Opera. From the motifs and crazy imagery to Wagner’s themes and use of myths, there’s a lot to be plundered talked about and analysed by genre types, I’m sure.
