Get the Ring for a Song

Der Ring Des Nibelungen

Here’s another treat for Canadian opera fans. Deutsche Grammophon is offering the Metropolitan Opera (James Levine) version of the complete Ring Cycle for the ridiculously low price of $35.99. This 14-CD set would normally go for about $130. This seems to be a special promotion for Canada only, but obviously anyone can order from if he or she is willing to pay the shipping. Thanks to my enabling soprano sister my copy is on its way.

Don’t forget, The Ringstarts tonight! Das Rheingold will air (and stream) at 6:30pm in most North American time zones on CBC Radio Two.
