Some of you will remember some 20 years ago when the City of Birmingham Opera took a nine hour version of Wagner's Ring to those pokey little theatres that could never normally dream of any opera. Jonathan Dove's reduced 18 instrument orchestration was very faithful to the spirit of the original (as was his later Jenufa). Then Graham Vick directed. Now Peter Rundel conducts and Antoine Gindt directs a revival of the show in Nimes, France (the home of denim).
