This thread is not so much about Wagner's Ring, but rather a showcase in regards to my knowledge of high class things.

Let's face it. I have a reputation around here for being "stupid". Well, here is my chance to shine and prove my critics wrong.

How many of you phorans can talk about opera?!!?!

I thought so.

Edit: My vote went to Karajan, which will be explained in future posts.

From wiki:

Nietzsche contra Wagner:

"Nietzsche contra Wagner" is a critical essay by Friedrich Nietzsche, composed of recycled passages from his past works. It was written in his last year of lucidity (LOL) (18881889), but was not published until 1895, six years after his mental collapse. Nietzsche describes in this short work why he parted ways with his one-time idol and friend, Richard Wagner. Nietzsche attacks Wagner's views, expressing disappointment and frustration in Wagner's life choices (such as his conversion to Christianity, perceived as a sign of weakness). Nietzsche evaluates Wagner's philosophy on tonality, music and art; he admires Wagner's power to emote and express himself, but largely disdains what Nietzsche calls his religious biases.

Nietzsche was right about two things.

He was right about Tristan Und Isolde being Wagner's best opera, and he was right about Wagner's Parsifal being a two thumbs down type of situation.

Nietzsche's mom believed that Nietzsche lost his mind because he did too much drugs, and that's the theory that I accept.

Nietzsche was a druggie burnout, and he was my friend.
