Das Rheingold – Wagner

Here is a rare chance to experience Wagner’s opera Das Rheingold in a unique 150th anniversary production, semi-staged, in costume and sung in German with English surtitles.

Das Rheingold is the preliminary opera in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, setting the scene for the later adventures of Gods, Valkyries and dragons.

The shortest of Wagner’s operas, Das Rheingold still bears the hallmarks of Wagner’s monumental handiwork and overpowering genius. In each venue, the performance makes full use of the substantial pipe organ, supplemented by percussion, giving a remarkably faithful and impressive account of Wagner’s score in some of the UK’s most treasured historic buildings.
