In the run-up to the Being Human festival, a group of students in the audience for Wagner’s epic ‘Ring Cycle’, conducted by Valery Gergiev (Birmingham Hippodrome) will take part in an intriguing experiment to monitor the sensations produced over the 16-hour cycle of four operas. How do we really experience Wagner’s music? http://beinghumanfestival.org/event/hearing-wagner/
