In the third part of the epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Siegfried pursues his path to manhood. As parental love dissipates and is replaced by romantic love and desire, Wagner reflects on the experience of human life and the fact of mortality.
This extraordinary production of The Ring from Het Muziektheater Amsterdam, in which Pierre Audi places the orchestras both in the pit and on the remarkable stage, blends the lyrical, mythical and philosophical qualities of Wagner’s work into a profound unity.
Astonishing sets by George Tsypin and fabulous costumes by Oscar-winning Eiko Ishioka, combined with passionate singing from the soloists and dramatic playing from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under the deft control of Hartmut Haenchen, create an intense and highly memorable experience.
This is a 3-DVD set!
"The present performance is wonderful because of Graham Clark. His Mimes vary with different productions because he understands the importance of integrating character development with the overall interpretation. Here, his Mime is strikingly complex.
Heinz Kruse has the voice for Siegfried…Kruse’s Siegfried lives for the moment…
…this is an admirable production, very highly recommended. " - Anne Ozorio, Music Web International
