This coming Wednesday, 22 May, is THE bicentennial day of celebration of the birth of Richard Wagner and we don't know of a single on-the-boards major opera house staging of any of his stageworks worldwide that Wagner would recognize as being his own stagework, even remotely. Not one, the Bayreuther Festspiele included. Poor Richard. We've done him a deep wrong.
Update (3:43 PM Eastern on 19 May): Our above is not quite accurate. We forgot about the Met's Robert Lepage staging of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen (a Freudian act of forgetting, no doubt). As dreadful as that staging is, Wagner would most certainly recognize that staging to be a staging of a stagework of his own, and would, at first, just as certainly even marvel at the stage machinery responsible for its presentation.
