Copulating Crocodiles WBAGNFARB

Wagner birthday "Ring" booed: The well-heeled and mostly staid Bayreuth audience, frazzled by the summer heat, was in an uproar after experiencing a staging that retained "the master's" text and music but threw in simulated fellatio, group sex, a Kalashnikov instead of a sword to kill a mythological dragon, and copulating crocodiles.

Given the, ahem, nature of some of the simulated acts, it might have been best if the writer had avoided lines such as, "[the 1976 production] has gone down as one of the best."
