About

The best sounding cycle on the market to date, bar none” was Gramophone’s verdict on Melba’s recording of Der Ring des Nibelungen in the 2004 production by the State Opera of South Australia.

The four Wagner operas were released separately in 2006 and 2007. Now comes a Super Audio Stereo and 5.1 Surround-Sound two-disc compilation from this landmark cycle which was proclaimed by countless reviewers around the world as the most exciting sounding Ring. The extensive selection comprises the most popular highlights, guaranteed to thrill any lover of Wagner’s music.

This award-winning Melba Ring announced Music Director Asher Fisch as one of the preeminent Wagner conductors of the present era. Fisch brings his broad early experience in Bayreuth and Berlin with Daniel Barenboim and his comprehensive immersion in Wagner to bear in these beautifully crafted performances.

Singers include the magisterial Lisa Gasteen as Brünnhilde, Stuart Skelton, now a leading Heldentenor, as Siegmund, the late Deborah Riedel in full flight as Sieglinde, and John Bröcheler as Wotan.

The Highlights booklet features Melba’s customary luxurious presentation with 127 pages, libretti in German and English, and an insightful essay by Mike Ashman.
