Notes & Reviews:

"DVD's second 'Ring' cycle deserves a warm welcome, however qualified. None of the video-recorded versions can be called ideal; but the Met cycle has plenty of strong points. It's the only one Wagner would have recognised - no small consideration. Here, Otto Schenk and designer Gunther Schneider-Siemssen preserve the Romantic imagery, often beautifully, as Brian Large's cameras reveal; but unimaginatively, with too many tired compromises." - Gramophone
