Some cities in the north of England were given a final sight of part of the Ring before the entire set (largely timber) was immolated on the banks of the Clyde. December's stand-in Brünnhilde, Margaret Kingsley, returned, and one performance was given by Joy McIntyre, another British soprano based largely in Germany. Donald McIntyre was just taking on the Wotan roles at Bayreuth and had not yet sung them at Covent Garden.
