Second day of Der Ring des Nibelungen in 3 acts by Richard Wagner
Libretto by the composer. Premiered at the Festspielhaus in Bayreuth on 16 August 1876.
Reprise of the production by Dieter Dorn & Jürgen Rose (2013-14)
Sung in German with English and French surtitles
Duration: approx. 4h50 (with two intermissions)
The feel-good part of the Ring is not just for Wagnerians; anyone who has marvelled at a bird singing in a tree can relate to it! As much as The Walkyrie spins a sad tale of revenge and persecution, episode three of Wagner’s ring cycle reads like a brilliant children’s story from cover to cover. Dorn and Rose will take us by the hand once again to lead us through the enchanted forest where the wild child Siegfried becomes man enough to repair his father’s broken sword, recover the ring and wake the power of a woman’s love.
