• Der Ring des Nibelungen
  • DAS RHEINGOLD

    This stunning production takes us to a mythical world of dwarfs and gods, magical helmets, and a ring that endows its wearer with ultimate power. 

    Deep beneath the surface of the Rhine, Alberich, a wily and treacherous dwarf, lusts after the Rhinemaidens' treasure: a cache of gold. Whoever owns the gold and forges it into a ring will have power over the world. Unable to catch one of the beautiful maidens, Alberich steals the gold.

  • DIE WALKÜRE

    The journey continues...

    In Die Walküre, the story of the Ring moves from the gods' home, Valhalla, to earth: Having brought Freia's freedom with the ring in Das Rheingold, Wotan sets about regaining the golden band and its unique power.

    Wotan must sacrifice his son Siegmund, renounce a daughter, Sieglinde, and abandon his favorite child, Brünnhilde, the leader of the Valkyries. Like all the Ring operas, Die Walküre stands on its own as great spectacle, masterful storytelling, and electrifying music.

  • SIEGFRIED

    Siegfried, raised by the dwarf Mime, knows no fear.

    With the potion of a slain dragon's blood, he unlocks nature's knowledge and discovers the beauty of human love with Brünnhilde; all despite the Wanderer-his grandfather Wotan, in disguise-and his meddling.

    The journey of the Ring continues as the story becomes more earthbound and human with each generation.  The magical allegory is matched by the stunning intricacy and heroic beauty of Wagner's score. 

  • GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG

    The curse of the Ring continues as potions lead to betrayals, deception, and murder.

    Siegfried and Brünnhilde are tricked by Gutrune, Gunther, and Hagen at the Gibichung castle. Siegfried retrieves the ring and is slain before Brünnhilde understands the deceit. In her rage, Brünnhilde takes the ring and plunges through her lover's funeral pyre and into the Rhine to restore the ring to its rightful owners.

    The flames of the pyre spread, destroying Valhalla and the gods. Brünnhilde's sacrifice has broken the ring's curse and a new beginning is possible.
