        Sorry, Jordan was SCHEDULED to be the RING conductor in 1995 but
could not make it.  He did conduct the 1994 Walkurie, however.

        Have to disagree.  It seemed that Kurwenal had absorbed, not
intellectually but by a kind of osmosis born of their intimacy, the sense
that the only way he could continue his relationship with Tristan was to
join him in death.  Nothing in the music or rather vague stage directions
contradicts this behavior.
