Review by Wolfgang September 25, 2010 (6 of 11 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
This is my first Wagner opera on CD and i was worried I might find it a bit much. I shouldn't have worried. By the time I was halfway through the first CD I was hooked. Its a bit like a musical version of 'Lord of the Rings' and l love that movie. Wagner's music sucks you in and once you are hooked there is no going back. Kurt Moll in the main role is awesome. I speak German and his way of.telling the story is magic. You can understand every word which is why I don't understand some of the comments about this recording. If you want the Wagner total immersion experience this is the way to go.
