Notes & Reviews:

Nearly 40 years ago, a small regional company in the Pacific Northwest decided to scale arguably the greatest height of operatic repertoire, Wagner's Ring. That amazing feat launched a legendary tradition that has become universally known as the Seattle Ring, a destination for the cycle's legions of devotees from around the world. Now, the fabled history of the Seattle Ring has been captured for commercial release for the very first time! The Seattle Ring is luxuriously packaged in a sturdy box, containing 14 CDs in color cardboard wallets and five 100-page perfect-bound books - one for each of the Ring's four librettos, in original German with English translations, plus a commemorative four-color booklet containing essays by Speight Jenkins and numerous photos documenting the 2013 Seattle Ring.

The Associated Press
Like a towering fir tree that survives after the primeval forest around it has vanished, the Seattle Opera's production of Wagner's Ring Cycle now stands alone as the only traditional depiction of the epic music drama on the American stage.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
Grimsley's Wotan...has something of the centred warmth and sound of Norman Bailey's...The Walsung twins give good value...[Mellor] has an attention to detail and dynamics reminiscent of Anne Evans. She never forces, never shows off but steers through the part with a beacon-like concentration...the musical achievement here is more than good enough to demand attention outside Seattle.

Opera Now
Fisch conducts the Seattle Symphony Orchestra with mixed results. One positive is that this Ring gains strength as it progresses, the negative being that it doesn't start with much conviction...Greer Grimsley's Wotan dominates, with noble, stentorian tone and a true sense of power.
