A concise, lucid interpretation of the opera world’s most complex masterwork by classics professor Owen Lee (1930-2019). This is an expanded version the intermission talks he wrote for the Met’s 1989 broadcasts of Der Ring des Nibelungen. The title comes from C.S. Lewis’s description of the effect of hearing the Ring for the first time: “The sky had turned round.”
