Yep, that just about sums it up. My audience applauded too...and the Met audience booed Loge, ha.

I'm not a Wagner fan, but I loved this production. Only two things I'd quibble about. Terfel seemed to spend more time standing still than singing. And calling a piece of cloth a "helmet" required more suspension of disbelief than I could come up with. The stage set surprised me. At first I thought, oh no, not another bare set! But this one worked very well. Those long planks were remarkably versatile, especially the slanted ones the singers could slide down. That long tilted stairway Wotan and Loge descended into Nibelheim was very dramatic. I only decided to go to this performance at the last minute, but I'm certainly glad I did!
