Financial Crisis Hits Wagner in Washington

General Director of Washington National Opera Plácido Domingo has announced that the scheduled Ring cycle will be postponed until the financial climate becomes more positive.

“Postponing the Ring protects the long-term financial health of the company and ensures that WNO will continue the legacy of artistic excellence that is central to our mission. Washington National Opera is committed to presenting our audiences with the world’s great artists and international productions and, by being fiscally responsible, we ensure that future,” stated Mark Weinstein, WNO Executive Director.

Das Rheingold and Die Walküre has already been produced.
