How was your experience?
If you are a Wagner fan, you may enjoy this opera. I'd never seen one of his operas and now I will never see another. It's ponderous and clunky and not much happens. The libretto is not poetic and the characters are not sympathetic. It's a lot of standing around and complaining and engaging in pseudophilosophical debates. Spend your money and 4.5 hours on something else.
