from PRX: Radio Lab’s ‘The Ring and I: The Passion, The Myth, The Mania’

Radio Lab‘s The Ring and I is a finely crafted program about Wagner’s monumental work known as the ‘Ring Cycle.’ Radio Lab’s summary is as follows:

‘Hosted by Jad Abumrad, “The Ring and I” asks what many of the uninitiated must wonder: “What’s the big deal?”. This journey, intended for both devoted fans and newcomers alike, visits with a diverse cast of characters who weigh in with their answers to this complex question, including interviews with film composer Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings), playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America), Metropolitan Opera tech director Joe Clark, Jungian psychologist Laurie Layton Schapira, Seattle Opera director Speight Jenkins, rock guitarist Gary Lucas, and many more.’
