Abendzeitung, a liberal evening tabloid in Munich, has published the first photos of the latest production of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen at Bayreuth. And in our honest English opinion, they're pretty darn erstaunlich.

Wolfgang Koch's Wotan driving a Mercedes down Route 66 in Das Rheingold? 'Natch.

Turn-of-the-last-century oil rigs for Die Walküre? Check.

A Mount Rushmore of Marx, Lenin, Stalin and Mao Zedong in Siegfried? Absolutely. 

Valhalla transported to Wall Street's New York Stock Exchange for Götterdämmerung? But, of course!
