Andrew Porter's fabulous translations of Wagner make it quite clear that 
opera in translation can work well.   Porter's English RING has famously 
been recorded on Chandos under Reginald Goodall.

Wagner himself expected his works to be done in translation outside 
German speaking countries.

You only need two things: WD-40 and Duct Tape.  If something moves and 
it shouldn't, use the Duct Tape.  If it won't move and it should, use 
the WD-40.
