La Fura dels Baus, famous for their opening ceremony of the Olympic games in Barcelona and opera stagings in Salzburg, Ruhrtriennale, etc., use 3D computer projections that evoke computer games, organic structures built of athletic performers that recall the "Cirque du soleil".
The production incudes world-class Wagner singers such as Matti Salminen and Franz-Josef Kapellmann, and promising young talents that include John Daszak (Loge) and Juha Uusitalo (Wotan), whom the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung hailed as a new "Number One among the opera gods."
