Thanks for the tip- I just bought the book.

I thought that the video was so funny and clever. I have always
avoided seeing the Ring because I really didn't know the complex the
plot line and felt the music is at times deadly boring (sorry). But
this was the first time I saw the plot in such a concise way and now
I may explore the Ring and find out why so many people swoon at how
superior it is to the usual Italian operas.
