Harry Kupfer’s 1991 Bayreuth cycle was a breath of fresh air, with Barenboim dynamic and poised in the pit, and a wonderful cast. Captured here is Tomlinson’s fi nest Wotan; Anne Evans makes a sublimely human Brünnhilde; and Siegfried Jerusalem, here in ringing voice, is both heroic and touching. Don’t let the flimsy packaging put you off: filmed in hi-def and excellently recorded in surround sound, this is the most consistently satisfying Blu- ray Ring.
