If you haven't been already, just thought I'd note that Vincent over at is doing yeoman's work with podcasts offering the greatest hits from the new Bayreuth Ring b-casts. Check 'em here.

Should the universe conspire in my favor, there's some small chance I might get a swing at the Aug 23 Walkure. If anyone in the know about such things cares to comment, is there really any sense in trying to snag a return/scalped ticket day of?

My only experience in 1984 could bode well for you. All of us who were there at the box office looking for returns were lucky. I was particularly lucky in that I received a free ticket from a gentleman whose wife was the Erda of the performance. I sat in a box with family and friends of performers. It was a wonderful experience despite Manfred Jung who was soundly booed. It was the first booing I had heard at an opera performance it added a certain frisson to the night. Good luck and get there early!
