Listen to the 4/12/20 edition of The Arts Seciton here: https://theartssection.org/episodes/2020/4/12/the-arts-section-041220-lyric-opera-cancels-ring-cycle-quibi-preview

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to Lyric Opera president and CEO Anthony Freud about the company’s decision to cancel a years-in-the-making production of The Ring Cycle. The Dueling Critics, Kerry Reid and Jonathan Abarbanel, will join me remotely to talk about our favorite stage to screen adaptations. A little later in the show, Gary pays tribute to singer-songwriter John Prine who passed away last week. And Gary catches up with RogerEbert.com assistant editor Nick Allen to talk about a new streaming platform that’s trying to stand out from the rest.
