n.— «They are a rare breed, those rabid fans of Wagner’s “Ring” cycle, and right now, they are angry.…While some Ringheads or Ringnuts, as they are called, took the change in stride, others were not shy about expressing their frustration with the Met’s decision.…Ringheads, also known as Wagnolaters, often travel the world to hear the cycle, reserving special devotion for Bayreuth, Germany, where Wagner’s own theater stands.» —“‘Ring’ Fans and the Met Lock Horns Over Ticket Rule” by Daniel J. Wakin New York Times Apr. 10, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
