Review from Ellen M.

Review from Larry

Description

Gods, goddesses, giants, and dwarves struggle to be lords of the ring, but as Wagner’s mammoth music drama unfolds, the ring’s curse unleashes its vengeance.

From the opening sounds of the River Rhine’s rippling waters through the majestic “Entry of the Gods into Valhalla,” you’ll be swept away by Wagner’s magnificent music. Wagner’s Ring creates a vivid world and a musical experience never to be forgotten.

James Conlon conducts an extraordinary cast of internationally acclaimed Wagnerians. As the chief god Wotan, Vitalij Kowaljow, a powerful Ukrainian bass, promises to “dominate every scene he is in” (The New York Times_). Making her Company debut as Wotan’s insistent wife Fricka will be Michelle DeYoung a “remarkably powerful mezzo” (_Opera Today), who has already performed the role at The Metropolitan Opera. Other notable debuts include Arnold Bezuyen as Loge and Gordon Hawkins as Alberich. Making a welcome return from previous seasons will be Jill Grove as the earth goddess Erda, Eric Halfvarson as the giant Fafner, and Graham Clark as Mime, one of his signature roles.

In German with English supertitiles.
