Anna Russell and The Ring of the Nibelung

Manolo says, thanks to one of the Manolo’s internet friends, the Manolo has been this week contemplating the The Ring of the Nibelung.

Of the course, the Manolo being the frivolous person, can only think of frivolous things, which is why the Manolo now commends to you the delightful Anna Russell, whose explanation of the Ring Cycle (mow more than 60 years old) remains hilarious to this day.

      Have heard this many times, but the video is great. She manages to distill the many hours down to the essentials.

    Manolo have you been reading my mind again? I was looking for this very Anna Russell skit/lecture a few days ago. Thank You!
