Spinning vinyl with the San Francisco Opera
Posted on August 09 2018
A few months ago, we were invited to participate in SF Opera's Ring Cycle. Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung) is a libretto and music, written over 20 years (1848-1874). SF Opera presents Ring Cycle with over 16 hours of music in 4 operas over the course of 6 days. SF Opera has a series of festival events, including talks, discussions, movie screenings about The Ring, as well as a chance for participants to listen to past performances on vinyl.
For the event, we made two custom engraved SF Opera LP Blocks, so that patrons could set up their own playlist, with a place to set the 'Now Spinning' record and another waiting in the queue, 'Up Next'.
