About

... there is no doubt that this year's Ring at Bayreuth belongs to... Thielemann... [who] creates a musical experience epic in its scale and inexorable in its apocalyptic, shattering power.” - The Guardian

Recorded live at the Bayreuth Festival, Germany, in 2008.

Thielemann’s conducting again creates the opera’s unique mystery… The first scene between Sieglinde, Siegmund and Hunding is really dramatic with Eva-Maria Westbroek’s vividly sung Sieglinde, Kwangchul Youn’s fine Hunding and Endrik Wottrich’s Seigmund now dramatically developed. …the wholeness of music, performance and human joy and suffering leaves the audience deeply moved and passionately enthusiastic.” - The Stage
