Das Rheingold- Flying Frogs

The definite visual highlight of Das Rheingold is not the hydraulically-operated world tree, not the transformers-robots-in-disguise giants nor is it the Oakley sunglasses on Wotan. It’s the stuffed frog they throw in the air when Alberich changes shapes. In such a polished and expensive production, you’ve got to love the idea of throwing a two dollar stuffed animal in the air as a special effect. Seriously, it’s worth buying the DVD just for that moment…..

Alberich’s gold lame  leisure suit rocks, too.
