Richard Wagner's operatic masterpieces - including the complete Ring Cycle - captured live in historic broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera. With casts that include such celebrated Wagnerians as Kirsten Flagstad, Lauritz Melchior and Hans Hotter led by iconic conductors including Fritz Reiner, George Szell and Erich Leinsdorf, these recordings have been newly restored from the original sources and vividly display the grandeur and immediacy of these legendary, once in a lifetime performances. The set comes in a lift-off box with all discs packaged in mini-jackets plus a 120-page perfect bound book. There will be synopses and essays about each opera within the book, and the audio is newly restored from the original tapes
