Arts and Culture: Download The San Francisco Opera's Acclaimed 2011 Performance of Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle for Free


DOWNLOAD THE LEGENDARY 2011 SAN FRANCISCO OPERA PERFORMANCE OF WAGNER'S RING OF THE NIBELUNG FOR FREE ON MY CLOUD. 

4 Complete Operas, Over 14 Hours of Music.

This is for Opera buffs and anyone else interested in Classical Music. Back in June and July 2011, the San Francisco Opera put on a performance of  Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle -- 4 great operas that are considered a foundation of the classical repertoire --  that that was widely acclaimed. Here are some reviews:



The San Francisco Opera has no plans to put on the Ring again (they do it only about once every 10 years) and there are no plans to release this commercially.

I have been looking for a way to hear this performance and found one tonight. It broadcast on radio internationally in 2011. Some kind person on You Tube made these excellent radio recordings, and I extracted high end MP3 files, checked them for viruses of course, and put them on my Google Cloud. These are not copyrighted materials and were released in broadcast.

This took me a while to do but it is worth it, they are amazing recordings.
