Final Jeopardy Explanation – Tuesday, June 18 2024

According to legend, in 1876, a notable mishap occurred during the production of Richard Wagner’s “Ring” cycle at the inaugural Bayreuth Festival in Germany. The “Ring” cycle, a monumental series of operas by Wagner, required elaborate stage designs and props, including a dragon for one of the operas. However, due to a logistical error, the dragon’s neck, a crucial component of the prop, was mistakenly shipped to Beirut, Lebanon, instead of Bayreuth, Bavaria, where the performances were scheduled to take place. This unexpected detour of the dragon’s neck to the Middle East rather than the intended German city caused quite a stir and presumably complicated the production efforts. This mix-up became a part of the lore surrounding the complexities and challenges of staging Wagner’s epic operatic series.
