    The DVD "The Golden Ring" is a really cool documentary by the BBC about the VPO/Solti Ring Cycle recording from 1965. One of the uninteruppted musical highlights is a take of the "Immolation Scene" from the end of Gotterdamerung with Nilsson as Brunnhilde. This and many other moments are unbelievable enough on the recording, but to see her doing it adds to the enjoyment. Absolutely amazing singing. You won't believe it.
