My son and I saw the third opera in the Ring cycle--"Siegfried"-- performed by Chicago Lyric Opera about 15 years ago. At the end of the 5+ hour long performance, we looked at each other and agreed that it's "not a single note too long".
We are both horn players-- and ol' Richard could certainly write for the instrument.
I could die a happy man in an opera orchestra.
