About ten years ago, Christopher Doig did something no other opera singer has ever done.

During a South Australia performance of Richard Wagner's entire epic tetrology, Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring Cycle), which involved a performance of all four component operas in one go (17 hours long, the first time it had been done since Wagner was alive), Christopher Doig playing the lead role of Wotan sang for the entire 17-hour performance, unlike the other opera stars who shared the roles with their understudies. And this was after three performances of the four operas spread over four nights during the three previous consecutive weeks. After that amazing performance (which received rave reviews), Christopher Doig retired as an opera singer while he was absolutely at the top of his game and came back to NZ and took on sports administrator roles in both cricket and rugby.
