Ring-like Operas: Lurline

Post by Van der Decken » Tue May 08, 2018 4:51 am

How about Wallace's Lurline? This one much less Ring-like yet there is a ring and the Rhine River and a flood but much of the story is different too. Read about it here:

Unlike Sigurd, there is a very good sound quality recording for reasonable price by NAXOS

Nick Fuller at the other site early in 2017 (when he was still SimonTemplar) mentioned it and I grabbed a copy. Haven't listened in many months so I pulled it out and got in the first 8 tracks. Very beautiful opera and sung in English.
