Dear visitors and members:

I just learned that Gunther Schneider-Siemmsen, designer of the sets for the Otto Schenck directed Metropolitan Opera "Ring," which preceded the more recent Lepage "Ring," has passed.

Well, here's the place to debate his legacy, i.e., to debate what kinds of sets best serve Wagners music-dramas. I'll have a few words to add to this debate in a bit, but I'm suffering a bad sinus infection this week and will have to wait till my head clears. So, go at it ..... !
