Please forgive the self promotion. I recently supplied the words for this video from the Sydney Symphony: a two-and-a-half minute summary of the Ring, narrated at warp speed by Matthew Backer, hilariously animated by Nathanael Van Der Reyden and directed and edited by Kai Raisbeck.
Of the three assignments I've had for the SSO, this was certainly the most unusual and my brain needed some time to unbend afterwards (lashings of comedy panel shows did the trick) but it was a seriously fun challenge and I'm glad to see it's been getting a good response online. The idea was to send Sydneysiders scurrying to Wagner's Ring Adventure, a one hour orchestral suite, conducted by the wonderful Mark Wigglesworth. I hope it's worked – this sounds like a great concert.
