In 2016, Sky broadcast Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen" live from the Bayreuth Festival. The musical director was Marek Janowski, one of the leading Wagner conductors of our time. Frank Castorf's production polarized like no other Bayreuth "Ring" production has for a long time.
The settings for "Siegfried" are a kind of socialist equivalent of Mount Rushmore and Berlin's Alexanderplatz.
The live broadcast was accompanied by music journalist and presenter Axel Brüggemann.
