Wagner's Das Rheingold The complete Ring Cycle at the Zürich Opera


Discover The Ring—Wagner’s epic four-part opera saga—just as the composer intended! After being presented separately at the Zürich Opera House over the course of the past four years, Wagner’s monumental cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen is now being performed live in its entirety in a once-in-a-lifetime event Bachtrack describes as "dramatic music-making at its finest". In the hands of General Music Director Gianandrea Noseda and Stage Director Andreas Homoki, Wagner's myth is represented as "a dysfunctional family of gods" (The Independent) in a polished yet unpretentious production that underscores the humanity of the characters, who are performed by the same exceptional cast of singers across all four operas.
