About

The tetralogy of four operas that form Der Ring des Nibelungen (‘The Ring of the Nibelung’) explores the conjunction of love and power in a mythic landscape in which true power resides in possession of the ring. Composed over more than a quarter of a century, monumental in scale, and structured after the precedent of Greek drama, the cycle was first performed in 1876. Staged by the award-winning director Stefan Herheim, this innovative new production from Deutsche Oper Berlin features a leading international cast conducted by Sir Donald Runnicles.

This new production of Wagner’s iconic Ring cycle was directed by the award-winning Norwegian artist Stefan Herheim, one of the most important directors of the moment, and known for his emphasis on historical contexts and ideas.

In addition to working as General Music Director of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Sir Donald Runnicles is a proven Wagner expert who is currently continuing his Ring interpretations in Hamburg, Berlin, Vienna and San Francisco, and at the BBC Proms in London, the Edinburgh International Festival and the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

The cast features an outstanding cast of world-class performers, including Nina Stemme, one of leading Wagner singers of the present day. Seenandheard-international.com called the performances of Das Rheingold and Die Walküre ‘intense, propulsive and full of dramatic sweep’.

Extra features:
- A ‘Making Of’ documentary including interviews with Stefan Herheim, Sir Donald Runnicles and behind the scenes footage.
- Interviews with members of Funding Wagner – The Ring Circle of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
