Film making at its best! Finally, opera fans get to see the fabulous set we heard so much about before the production opened. A wonderful, suspenseful occasionally terrifying narrative fraught with the many miracles and disasters that inevitably accompany such ambitious projects. This was the Met's first Ring cycle in 20 years. Previous ticket sales were at an all-time low. Canada's own Robert Lepage to the rescue. He is such a charming, cheerful soul and so wonderfully articulate in both languages that one can't help swelling with national pride. Highly recommended for anyone who imagines a life in the theatre and for anyone who wonders in the contemporary artistic wasteland whether Canada still inspires excellence at anything.
