Why See Metropolitan Opera - Das Rheingold?

Classical & Opera

In the begining

Prepare yourself for The Met's revival of Wagner's spectacular Ring Cycle, last seen in 2013. A popular favorite with all audiences, the sprawling saga invites you to enter a dense world of warring Gods, monsters and mythology, scored by one of opera's most famous and bombastic composers. Magnificent in scope and featuring some of the most unforgettable music in the repertoire, don't miss your chance to see it performed by the renowned company, in one of the most glorious and sumptuous productions on the planet.

Das Rhiengold introduces the cycle, exploring the roots of the sacred treasure and the origins of the legendary battle to obtain it, and gain its untold power and dominion. Michael Volle and Greer Grimsley will share the role of God King Wotan, alongside Jamie Barton as his wife Fricka, making her Wagner Met debut.

THE RHINEGOLD

Embittered by his failed attempt to seduce the three Rhine Maidens, the sly dwarf Alberich steals the precious river gold, forging a ring of power and enslaving his fellow dwarves in the Underworld.

Meanwhile, Wotan, King of the Gods is embroiled in a complicated battle with the giants Fasolt and Fafner who demand a rich payoff for building Valhalla, the magnificent new home of the immortals. When Wotan hears of Alberich's ring of power, he seeks to steal it and pay his debt. But at a heavy price, for the ring is fatally cursed and ruins the lives of all those who come into contact with it...
