Rheingold with white plastic chairs

I can add to the list of things to which I wish I had bought tickets the Rheingold with which Currentzis is making his foray into Wagner. His Da Ponte trilogy on Sony has hitherto been electric.

Some more information in German here; and in English on the Ruhrtriiiennale website here. It would be great to hear and see this- fingers crossed for a stream or broadcast. I have no doubt this will sound nothing like Wagner has before. And the post-industrial setting must suit Nibelheim perfectly.
