"The Ring and I" is a story about the love affair between hundreds of thousands of people and one, colossal, controversial and awe-inspiring piece of work, Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung. Join us this Sunday for this special program on Public Radio Presents.

This is an examination of the ways Wagner's Ring Cycle has inspired passion, impacted culture, and invited controversy over the last 125 years. Hosted by Jad Abumrad, "The Ring and I" asks what many of the uninitiated must wonder: "What's the big deal?"
