Issues surrounding Nature and Wagner's Ring Cycle were recently examined as part of an ROH Insights session.

Panelists at the event, which was chaired by broadcaster Petroc Trelawny, looked at how nature is represented in the work and the question of whether The Ring is a parable of our own ecologicaldestruction of the planet. They also questioned whether Man's impact on the environment is ever possible human beings can have a lasting impact on the environment.

The panel for the event included writers George Monbiot and Sarah Lenton, mathematician and broadcaster Marcus du Sautoy and Director of The Royal Opera Kasper Holten. As with all events in the series, the event was livetweeted.

  1. Fantastic production - once in a lifetime experience - unless you're into reincarnation!
