The LA Opera Ring opened last weekend, and it boasts a nice selection of Trappers turned Wagnerians. Below, the list of seven WTOC alums who appeared in Saturday night’s Rheingold. Several of them return throughout the Ring, and they are joined by Alan Held as Gunther in Götterdämmerung.
Richard Paul Fink, Alberich
Michelle DeYoung, Fricka (returning as Sieglinde in Die Walküre and Waltraute in Götterdämmerung)
Morris Robinson, Fasolt
Beau Gibson, Froh
Stacey Tappan, Woglinde (returning as the Woodbird in Siegfried)
Lauren McNeese, Wellgunde
Ronnita Nicole Miller, Flosshilde (returning as Schwerleite in Die Walküre)
Wagner may never come to The Barns, but we won’t let that stop us from sending singers to Walhalla.
