Johannes Martin Kranzle
Chorus & Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala
In Siegfried, the 'Second Day' or third evening of the Ring Cycle, we meet the pivotal hero of the epic tale. The energetic drive from Die Walküre is pursued here while Siegfried finally recaptures the mighty ring from Fafner the Dragon and awakens Brünnhilde from her penal sleep on the great rock.
Lance Ryan, having interpreted this role on the greatest stages of the world - including the Bayreuth Festival, portrays the naïve hero. His antagonists are Peter Bronder, great and agile as Mime, Terje Stensvold, an experienced Wanderer and Johannes Martin Kränzle, who continues his mean and deceitful depiction of Alberich. The leading ladies are Nina Stemme, once again unrivalled as Brünnhilde and Anna Larsson, moving as the God-mother Erda.
"Daniel Barenboim and the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala performed a convincing Siegfried sound, which held the ideal balance between dramatic phases with their increasing dynamics and the calmer passages." - Der Neue Merker
"A visually compelling production." - The Opera Critic
