Editorial Reviews

In the second work of Wagner's epic cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Wotan faces the consequences of his actions, begun in Das Rheingold, while his daughter Brünnhilde emerges as the heroic voice of the conscience he strives to silence. Struggles of power mix with adulterous and incestuous love in an episode of dramatic vengeance. Filmed at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu in 2003, Harry Kupfer's acclaimed production, first staged in Berlin, numbers among the greatest productions of modern times and is recorded in sumptuous surround sound.

Sung in German, with English, French, German, Spanish, Catalan and Italian subtitles.

Format: DVD
Other performances are musically superior to this...but there is a subtlety here that, for this observer, is mind bending: Fricka's phoney Ram canes....Wotan revealing himself in Act III as the World Ash Tree....one is not at the opera...one is with one's primordial tribe working out a cosmic mystery.

The singers are fine...the orchestra is fine...but there is a "finess" transcendent in this production that the seasoned Wagnerian should not miss.

Lest these remarks come off as coldly intellectual, I needed three Bounties to get through Act III...got the boo hoo's early on and still may have to reach for another.
