Why? WHY did they do this?! I don't even understand it at all.

Maybe it's just the conservative side in me that makes me feel so frustrated with this "Regietheater" production of my top favorite opera(s) of all time. Usually, I favor more traditional opera productions. It is what the composer originally intended, and if a stage director tries to bring their own perspective into, say, Donizetti's L'Elisir D'Amore or Rimsky-Korsakov's The Golden Cockerel, then it's more of a blasphemous decision. Nobody is going to understand why Nemorino sings "Una Furtiva Lagrima" in the middle of a cubist cemetery, or why Caspar visits the Wolf's Glen (from Weber's Der Freischütz) while holding an artichoke and wearing a Boston Red Sox cap. Sometimes I have no problem with changing the time that the opera takes place in: you can set Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in Ancient China and it would still make as much sense. Just so long as the story is unchanged, then it would be fine. There are only a few times in which a "Regietheater" production is actually quite interesting. The Bayreuth Ring production from the early 90's (with Harry Kupfer as the director) is one of those examples: it features fantastic lighting effects and an intriguing post-apocalyptic ambiance. Unfortunately, most other productions fail in the most immense fashion. This Ring production from Stuttgart is the very image of modernistic displeasure. It's not set in a Norse/Germanic setting; rather, it's set in a semi-realistic present-day setting. And what's worse is...well, let's go further into detail, shall we?

CONDUCTOR:
Lothar Zagrosek, who is mostly known for his interpretations of 20th Century classical works, gives his own take of Wagner's Ring Cycle.

Verified Purchase
The scenery of the first opera I saw (Das Rheingold) is "modern", i.e. very simple and without the beatiful scenarios concieved by Wagner. It brings the music and the caption, which by its turn is much better than just the CD music.

It isn't clear from the description, but judging by the conductor, list of players and the fact that it was performed at the Stuttgart Statsoper, I suspect this is a re-release of the 2004 Stuttgart ring (now out of production).

Be warned - this is not only an unconventional Ring - it's also a unsuccessful one. The concept was to use a separate director for each opera in the cycle: a bold concept which fails utterly.

Feel free to buy a copy out of curiosity, but don't expect much. It typifies the worst of Regietheater.

Be brave and go for a new Ring! The old dvd versions are, how to say it?, boring and old fashioned.
