Hi listers,

The Copenhagen Ring is launched in its entirety in the spring 2006 and will cost
app. 830, 665, 535, or 350 dollars in subscription. A 10% discount is given to
subscribers; the actual prices are, therefore, somewhat higher. A limited number
of standing room tickets will become available.

The operas are, however, also run throughout the season, but with several months
in between, thus not allowing you the "total" experience of all four operas in a
row. On these nights the tickets are only half of the above-mentioned prices.

The details on casting can be seen below (note: Domingo will only sing a single
Siegmund here and not as part of the cycles).

The Copenhagen Ring is my first Ring, and Die Ring der Nibelungen is slowly but
surely getting hold of me ... :-) However, I am not sure I have even 350 dollars
to spend, not in addition to my other expensive subscriptions (I consider the
standing room for the cycles). So, I thought I'd get some international
perspectives on this... opera-l, of course.

- Do you believe it is much, much more expensive to run the operas in cycles
instead of running them separately?

- What are your experiences with pricing on Ring Cycles?

- How much are you willing to fork out for a Ring Cycle and what do you consider
important when attending a Ring?

- Would any of you... consider going to Copenhagen?

Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
