1. Interesting you posted this. Years ago (50 to be exact) I saw that opera in the original....

....Metropolitan Opera House on Broadway in New York. That was before it was demolished in lieu of the new Opera House in Lincoln Center.

My brother is a Wagner freak!

2. I used to listen to "Ride of the Valkyries"

on my way to work. It made my boring commute to my so-so job seem like a great adventure quest.

3. What kind of opera fan are you?

Where at the UH-1 helicopters, the 1st Cavalry surfboards, and more importantly, where's the napalm? No Ride of the Valkyries is complete without napalm!

5. My introduction to this piece...

As with many other classics.




I like Wagner but I always remember this whenever I listen to that piece.
