Hojotoho!

Today I’m off to New York to see the second opera of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, Die Walkure. This s what’s in store for me

A stranger seeks refuge,

The lady of the house gives him water.

Their hands touch.

Something other than thirst

Needs quenching.

They are twins,

Separated at birth.

Incest, adultery, chaos

Ensues.

Wotan battles with Fricka.

Brunhilde defies her father.

A cuckholded husband

Demands revenge.

Father exiles daughter,

In a sleep spell

Behind a wall of fire.

Das Ende!

Desperate power.

More to come.

  1. Such drama! Hope your trip is great. I wanted to let you know that something happened with my blog today in which each comment I approved disappeared into the ether. I saw you were a person who commented today and wanted to thank you for it here. Still trying to figure out what happened!
