Das Rheingold received one performance this season.

Review in the New York Sun:
The annual performances of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen began at the Metropolitan Opera House yesterday afternoon. Owing to the conditions now surrounding the performances of Opera in this town, Das Rheingold has been relegated to this series of representations. The prologue of the tetralogy is out of the repertory apparently for good. Fashionable society will not sit through a work lasting two hours and a half without intermission and with the theatre dark all the time and other people will not pay $6 to hear a one act opera.
