Edinburgh International Festival Review: Siegfried

The penultimate instalment of Wagner’s Ring Cycle is not the most dramatic but the combination of Mark Elder conducting The Hallé, who were sensational (especially the horns, tubas, woodwind and strings), and a clutch of outstanding singers made for a thrilling evening.
