Dessau Ring ALERT!!! - Tickets on Sale for June 2015

Forwarded from Andy Rombakis and posted on May 12, 2014.

For those of you who may be interested in attending the Ring in Dessau, the May cycle is completely sold out already, however they have just opened website orders for their June, 2015 cycle. Tickets however are only available on the GERMAN language version of the website, not the English language version. The tickets are relatively inexpensive by American standards, but it is a small house, so there are not that many tickets available. Act quickly if you are interested.
