The Ring of the Nibelung - "Das Rheingold"

The Rheingold
Live from the Bayreuth Festival

In 2016, Sky broadcast Richard Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen" live from the Bayreuth Festival. The musical director is 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. For the artistic director of the Berlin Volksbühne, the oil represents the Rheingold of our time. He therefore relocates the action of the first part of the tetralogy - "Das Rheingold" - to a gas station on Route 66.

The live broadcast was accompanied by music journalist and presenter Axel Brüggemann.
