It's been a dream since my teenage hears to go to Bayreuth and see the epic saga that is Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle.

This will consist of four reviews of the four opera that make up the ring, so look out for them soon. 

So brace yourself for my writing on the equivalent of The Lord Of The Rings in operatic form. It will be long, thrilling and mesmerising. The excitement is brimming within me.

I should go into detail what it is like to be there at Bayreuth. Most people go for all things Wagner, so getting to know the place has its advantages. A few days in Nuremberg are also in order. 

Of all my cultural endeavours, this will certainly become one of the most memorable and important. Opportunities like this don't come around very often. Which is why you just grasp them whilst you can.

So like with Puffball back in April I leave Cardiff behind for some time and enjoy some time abroad. As always a pleasure.

Auf Wiedersehen!
